Last night club members were extremely fortunate to enjoy a visit from 2 of the stars from the GB ladies hockey team who won Gold in Rio. Their Olympic effort inspired a nation, captured our hearts and secured funding. Furthermore it will have done a massive amount for our sport in general and will in turn, do a lot of good for our club. The juniors benefited from one on one GK coaching with Kirsty Mackay and skills lessons from Sophie Bray. The Olympic stars then addressed the group and gave advice on penalty shuffles and witnessed some of youngsters have a go themselves (successfully).
