England Women Start Their Euros Defence With Win Over Ireland

England women began their defence of the EuroHockey Championships with a 4-1 victory over Ireland in Amsterdam on Saturday afternoon. Ireland (ranked 16 in the world) performed better than the final result suggested against the reigning champions (WR 2), only trailing 1-0 at half time. England took an early lead, Laura Unsworth’s attack from the right seeing her cross turned in by an Irish defender close to captain Alex Danson, with Surbiton’s Hannah Martin also well positioned in the circle. Although England had plenty of possession, the Irish defence held firm, with Ireland very occasionally threatening to level, Roisin...

Germany Too Strong For Scotland Women At Euros

Scotland Women, including Surbiton’s Robyn Collins found Germany too strong for them on day two of the Rabo EuroHockey Championships in Amsterdam on Saturday morning, losing 4-1 in the first game in Pool B. Scotland (ranked 17 in the world) made the worst possible start against their opponents (WR 7), not only conceding a goal after just 32 seconds, but also losing their video referral, querying whether the ball had touched a German foot, with the video umpire unable to decide using available footage. In contrast, Charlotte Stapenhorst’s shot raised high into the goal gave Germany, including current Surbiton Head Coach, Brett Garrard as an Assistant Coach for the duration of the tournament, the perfect start to their campaign. Germany put the Scottish defence under severe pressure during the first quarter, but needed Pia Grambusch’s penalty corner conversion in the 13th minute to double their lead, the ball deflected off the Scottish post defender’s stick into the roof of the net. Scotland managed to keep Germany’s forwards at bay throughout the second and third quarters, former Surbiton goalkeeper, Amy Gibson performing heroics. Scotland were unable to take advantage of the possession they had although Sarah Robertson went close with an overhead stick shot from their first penalty corner. Germany kept pressing and were rewarded in the 52nd minute, Teresa Martin Pelegrina spinning round in the centre of the circle...
