White Hart Lane welcome for GB women

Great Britain’s women enjoyed a night at the football on Wednesday courtesy of team sponsor Investec, which also sponsors Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs fans Chloe Rogers and Helen Richardson were hyped up for a night at ‘their’ club as Spurs took on Stevenage in the FA Cup.  The pair were interviewed for Spurs TV before the match and at halftime Chloe, Helen and ten of their teammates were paraded on the turf at White Hart Lane in front of a sell out crowd. 

The reaction of the fans was superb, with many wishing the team good luck for the Olympic Games this summer.  Such was the reception that even Ashleigh Ball, who was outed as an Arsenal fan in front of 36,000 Spurs fans, received a warm welcome.

Remember, you can see the GB women in the flesh live at the Investec London Cup in Chiswick.  The tournament, which features the Netherlands, Germany, Australia, South Africa, Ireland and GB, runs from 5-10 June 2012.  With tickets starting at just £1 for kids and £10 for adults it's a superb value family day out.  Find out more and book tickets at www.greatbritainhockey.co.uk/investeclondoncup.
