Player Bio

Few athletes have enjoyed quite the whirlwind start to their international career that Fiona has as, within a 10 month period, she went from being a member of the GB EDP to an Olympic bronze medallist.

The tough tackling defender burst onto the international scene in late 2020 when she made her senior GB debut against The Netherlands in the FIH Hockey Pro League. Despite the magnitude of her opponents, the young defender was unfazed and helped the team - missing 10 players through injury - secure a creditable draw.

Having been rewarded with a full-time place on the programme in January 2021, she quickly established herself as a pivotal player in the GB set up and went on to win bronze at the Tokyo 2020 Games, just weeks after making her senior tournament debut with England at the 2021 EuroHockey Championships.

The Durham University student also captained England's U18 team to bronze at the 2018 EuroHockey Youth Championships.
