Six female members of St Albans Hockey Club impressed at the recent Euro Masters Championships in Glashow.

Liz Cleverly won a silver medal with England Over-50s after losing on penalties to the Netherlands in their final, which had ended in a 2-2 draw.

Cleverly also finished as the tournament’s top goalscorer in her age group, while clubmate Sarah Embrey added silver with England Over-45s after netting in a 2-1 final loss to their Dutch rivals.

Meanwhile, Jo Weston and AM Davenport were members of the England Over-40 squad who just missed out on a place in the final after losing to Germany on penalties in their semi-final.

But they bounced back to beat Ireland 2-0 in the third-place play-off to claim bronze and add to the medal haul.

St Albans’ Jo Herbert captained the Wales Over-40 team, while Emma Turner skippered Wales Over-50s.
