St Albans Hockey Club’s player-coach Hannah Macleod is in the Great Britain squad looking to impress at the World League, which starts on Wednesday.

The competition is an important stepping stone for the GB team in its quest to qualify for next year’s Rio Olympics.

GB start their campaign with a game against Spain and then take on the mighty Argentina.

Macleod has 116 international caps for England and Great Britain and won bronze at London 2012.

She has just completed her first season in charge of the St Albans HC’s ladies’ first team as the club expands and pushes for promotion to the National League Premier Division, where Macleod has won three championship-winning medals, all with Leicester.

Alongside a busy international summer schedule, Macleod has already run several summer sessions for the St Albans squad and prospective new recruits. She also took time out to lend a hand with youngsters at the recent club day at Oaklands.
