Hello All,

Well in to the New Year now and have since returned back to action for Leicester after our GB adventures in Spain at the start of January.

We got off to winning ways beating Canterbury 3-0 and puts us still in the chase to get a European qualification spot in the league (top 2) and we played some really good hockey as a team.

Training has been pretty full on the last few weeks and now starting to really get back into action with England training starting up soon again.

My aims for this year are to be apart of the squad for the Champions Trophy, Sydney in July and really push on and challenge for top two spots at the Europeans, Amsterdam in August with England.

At the start of January I was lucky enough to be nominated as a Team Essex Ambassador for the county and attend an evening function at the House of Lords in London it was also a nice occasion as my Parents and brother Ollie all attend and we had a nice evening out. Through this I hope to be able to inspire and pass on my experience in sport to younger people and encourage them to take up a sport especially with Essex hosting the mountain biking event at the London 2012 Olympics.

With Leicester we face Poynton on Saturday, if the weather allows us, having missed most of our outdoor training this week due to the snow. This is why I think we should play more indoor and have a longer indoor season due to the weather!!

Best Wishes
