Playoffs Nearing....

Where to start it has been a pretty busy few months for myself. I'll start with how the international scene has been going.

We welcomed Scotland and Wales to Bisham Abbey last week for a round-robin Home International Tournament where we came out 2-0 winners over Scotland and beat Wales 6-0 with myself getting on the score sheet 3 times for my first Senior hatrick of goals.

Following on from this we then had a 3 match test series as GB vs the Olympic Silver medallist China. These matches turned out to be a bit tougher, with us winning the first match 1-0 then losing 2-1 and 3-1. We played very well in the last match and where unlucky not to get a result from this game, but it looks like all the hard training is starting to pay off with some real signs of development in our performances.

The England National Hockey League has now finish and my team Leicester managed to remain unbeaten for the whole season and finished top of the league qualifying us for the European Hockey League next year along with our Indoor title in February we will have European trips indoors and outdoors next year. We now just have the playoffs left next weekend and then the Women's Cup final in Beeston on the 15th May, so we are looking to complete the whole set of titles which will capture a great year for Leicester Ladies.

Fingers crossed we will pull it off!!

Off the hockey pitch, I have been quite busty too visiting a number groups.

I spent the Friday of Sport Relief traveling around Essex visiting 5 different schools that were all carrying out activities to help raise funds for Sport Relief. It was a very fun day and to see so many young people enjoying themselves whilst doing a sporting activity was great.

This week I am due to visit a School in Stansted to show off my golf skills playing Tri-golf and also a School in Witham to help with some hockey coaching. Look back to see some photo's of the day.

Thanks for reading
