Marlow’s Freya Bull has left for China this week to play for GB EDP in the Four Nations U23 Hockey Tournament.

Freya began playing her hockey at Marlow Hockey Club and continued to play there until she was 16 when she moved to Reading Hockey Club to play in their Ladies 1st XI in the Premier League, playing alongside the famous Richardson-Walshes. Freya has played for the England U16 and the England U18 teams.

She has been selected for the GB Women’s Elite Development Programme (EDP) squad for the Four Nations tournament in China.

Kevin Johnson and Hannah MacLeod will be in charge of the side, with the former emphasising how important events like this to help these players develop into potential medal winning Olympians of the future.

“We are delighted to be invited to make the trip over to China to play in the upcoming Four Nations tournament,” Johnson said.

“Opportunities like these for our players allow them to engage with different challenges and environments which all adds experience in their ambitions to play senior international tournament hockey for Great Britain in the future.”
