Goals - 55 (22 GB / 33 Eng)

Formally Hannah Martin, Hannah French has flourished since making her international debut back in 2017, becoming a crucial player for both the England and GB teams.

She first picked up a hockey stick while in Year 4 at Ipswich School and has never looked back, with her older brother Harry being the perfect role model to look up to and emulate.

Hannah has certainly caught the eye with her rapid hands and dazzling skills and is a constant source of frustration to defenders, often chipping in with vital goals.

No better was this proved than at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics where she scored four goals on the way to helping Great Britain win bronze. What made her Olympic medal even more special though was that it came just four months after she sustained a broken leg and ankle ligament damage.

In addition she won Commonwealth gold with England in their historic Birmingham 2022 campaign, having also won European bronze and another Commonwealth bronze with her home nation.

Then in December 2022, Hannah was a part of the squad that went out to Argentina for the 4th season of the FIH Pro League.
