It is with great sadness that the England Hockey has learned this morning of the death of Emma Broad.

The St George’s College pupil was a member of the England under 16 girls team that recently competed in the Easter four nations tournament against Spain, Germany and the Netherlands in Valencia.  Emma scored in the match against Germany, which England narrowly lost 3-2.

She was also a member of Surbiton HC and played a number of times for the club’s 1st XI in the England Hockey League this season.

Emma died peacefully and unexpectedly in her sleep on Saturday night.

The England Hockey sends its condolences to Emma’s family, friends and teammates at this difficult time.
