Our friends at Maidenhead Hockey Club were invited by BBC Newsround to meet a couple of the England Hockey stars, ahead of the Hockey World Cup starting tomorrow. Year 9 pupil, Emily, a member of the club, was lucky enough to meet England players Maddie Hinch and Alex Danson, GB captain. We can't wait to cheer on our very own hockey star at the World Cup, former Head Girl, Ellie Rayer, playing as a forward in tomorrow's game at 14:00 against India!
