BUCKS New University has been cheering all week as graduate Chloe Rogers and the women’s hockey team continue their march towards the knock-outs.

Marlow’s Alex Danson scored twice in GB’s 4-0 win over Japan in their opening match, before Rogers scored late on to secure a 5-3 victory over South Korea in their next match.

Danson and Nicola White, also from Marlow, put GB 3-1 up, but they needed Rogers’ late effort to make sure of the points after the Koreans had battled back to 3-3.

Rogers completed a BA (Hons) Sports Management and Golf Studies degree at the university in 2007.

Professor Chris Kemp, Pro Vice Chancellor and Executive Dean of BNU said: “I have been keeping an eye out for Chloe throughout all of the group matches and was very pleased to see her score.

“She was an excellent student and a lovely girl and received a special award after leaving the university for her contribution to sport. I “It was a very proud moment. We don’t get many Olympians but Chloe is very much cherished.”

Rogers, who still lives in Wycombe, played hockey for England at U15, U18 and U21 levels and also represented her country at golf.

Meanwhie, former John Hampden pupil Nick Catlin is still on course to reach the semi-finals with the men’s team.

They beat Argentina 4-1 in their opening game before coming from behind to take a point from South Africa in a 2-2 draw.

Team GB women were due to play their third game against Belgium last night while the men play Pakistan at 4pm today.
