Great Britain women’s hockey head coach has named squad for the FIH Olympic Qualifiers.
In addition to the seven Rio 2016 gold medallists that have been selected, the team will also see  Leah Wilkinson taking on Chile in their do-or-die FIH Olympic Qualifier on 2-3 November.
Leah Wilkinson, Wales’ most capped team sport athlete of all time – made her own maiden GB appearance in that series and featured in all three games as her side took the overall victory.
Ahead of the crucial double-header, women’s head coach Mark Hager said:
“We’ve brought in Leah Wilkinson to give us another key defender; she’s deserved her place after playing well in the recent India Test series.” Mark said.
“We’ve been training really well, it’s been a tough decision around selection as any number of our squad could have made the team. We’ve got a lot of girls in good form at the moment, so we’ve got to make sure we keep them confident and let them back themselves to go out there and play.” said Mark.
