England Hockey were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of former international hockey player Rachael Heyhoe Flint.

A pioneering sportswoman best known for her fantastic achievements in Cricket, Rachael also authored books on hockey and coached in our sport for a number of years.

She won four international caps representing the nation in hockey in 1964, and was also hockey correspondent for The Daily Telegraph for a number of years. At domestic level she played for Ealing LHC among others, and was a keen supporter of the Hockey Museum.

As a trailblazer in her field, she will be very sadly missed, and we would like to pass our sincere condolences to her family, friends and teammates.
