Emily Sumaria Memorial Hockey Match

Emily Sumaria Memorial Hockey Match

In December 2012 at the age of 19 Emily Sumaria, a former pupil of the Junior School (now Cheltenham Prep) and Cheltenham Ladies College passed away from Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP). She was at Leeds University. 

As Emily was an avid and keen hockey player it was felt that an annual memorial match in her name between College and CLC would be a great way to remember Emily and bring awareness of this form of Epilepsy. 

This was the second match held in her name and this year CLC won 3-1. It was an open game played in the right spirit with both teams having opportunities although CLC proved to be more clinical in taking their short corners.
