Player Bio

Having been inspired whilst watching her heroes win Olympic bronze at London 2012, Emily is now following in their footsteps as a fully fledged international player.

Just a few months after making her senior international debut, she was part of the England side that won 2017 European bronze before picking up another medal of the same colour at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Success isn’t novel to Emily though, having won several Vitality Women’s Hockey League titles with Surbiton and both the BUCS League and Cup titles while studying at the University of Birmingham. 

She was also voted the 2012 Hockey Writers’ Club Young Player of the Year and also was also named the 2014/15 Women’s Junior Performance Player of the Season.
