Great Britain’s women have each made three changes to their team for this weekend’s FIH Pro League matches in London.

The women’s team play on Friday evening as they host China in the capital, and Scottish duo Nicki Cochrane & Sarah Robertson come into the 18, along with Surbiton’s Emily Defroand and East Grinstead’s Ellie Rayer.

There will be a significant milestone for Laura Unsworth on Friday as she becomes one of a very select band of women to reach 100 caps for Great Britain.

The women’s game begins at 7:30pm on Friday evening. The game take place at Lee valley Hockey and Tennis Centre, and tickets start from just £5. They are available in advance, or in person at the venue.

Women’s Head Coach Mark Hager said, “After the atmosphere against USA on Saturday, we’re very much looking forward to playing at home again on Friday night.

“China will be a tough team, they’re getting better with each game they play. They’ve had some good results of late so it will be a challenge for us.

“We’ve made a few amendments to our squad, it’s important we give opportunities to as many players as possible, especially in a competitive environment like the FIH Pro League.

“We are still developing but I thought we showed some good aspects to our play against USA at the weekend. The FIH Pro League is a great opportunity and playing home games in London is a fantastic experience.”
