England Women's O-40 come 3rd

Posted by Nobody on 9 August 2018

Huge congratulations to England's O-40 Women's team who won bronze at the Masters World Cup in Barcelona, a team that included Wapping L1 player Becky Hart.

England were the top seed in pool 3, up against Italy, New Zealand and France. First up were Italy, who were dispatched in a comfortable 7-0 win. New Zealand provided stiffer competition in the next match, with England winning 3-1 before they saw off France 5-0 in the last pool match.

That put the team top of the group and through to quarter finals, where they were keen to get revenge against Germany, after losing out to them in a shootout in the European Championship semi finals last year. England succeeded and won 1-0.

The semi final was against Australia in 40 degrees heat! Unfortunately the team lost 2-1 in a really close match with some fantastic hockey played by both teams. The team rebounded in the bronze match against the Netherland, showing grit and determination to come back from 2-0 down to win 3-2.

England Masters Hockey got medals in every category so huge success for England Hockey. And whilst having picture taken with my Wapping scarf was approached by Australian lady whose husband was playing for go Australia but used to play for Wapping when he lived in London!!
