She spent over three hours working with the group as they explored counter attacking and how to receive the ball in order to go forwards as fast as possible – crucial skills for the modern, fast paced game.

Jamie Kingstone, head coach of JK Hockey, said: “It was inspiring to have such a decorated and well known hockey player such as Kate visit us but most importantly she had all the time in the world for the players.

“They left feeling like they got to know her and that is how you build the next generation of international players”.
