A fantastic 8 out of the 20 players named in the FIH Pro League women’s hockey squad for GB were announced this week as UoB current students or alumna! The league, which starts with the first game for the women against New Zealand away on 8 February, is important for Olympic qualifications, and so is a key tournament for the ladies.
Alongside current student Holly Munro, who studies Psychology and is in her third year, alumna Lily Owsley MBE, Holly Hunt, Sarah Evans, Hannah Martin, Anna Toman, Emily Defroand and Erica Sanders are included in the squad. Lily and Holly, although having finished their studies, still play for the University of Birmingham National League team, who you can see on the hockey pitches on Saturdays (see their full list of upcoming home fixtures here). Holly Hunt and Holly Munro look to make their international debuts, and Munro will also gain her first senior GB cap, whereas Anna Toman is just three appearances away from 50 international caps.
Check out when the women are playing at home here, and cheer them on with us!
