Surbiton Ladies’ Emily Defroand, along with Rio gold medallist Helen Richardson-Walsh are going to be the face of an East London Hockey Project in the build-up to next summer’s Women’s Hockey World Cup.

On Friday they both attended Walthamstow Academy to help out at a girls’ PE lesson together with volunteers from Waltham Forest Hockey Club.
