International Achievements

Maddie Hinch and Hollie Webb 50th Cap

During 2014, there have been some fantastic international achievements for us to celebrate within the England men's and women's squads.

At the 2014 Champions Trophy in Bhubaneswar, Ashley Jackson became the all time top goal scorer for England and Great Britain. He now sits on a combined total of 112 goals, surpassing Calum Giles' record of 110. This achievement, amongst many others, is one of the reasons Jackson has been nominated for the FIH Player of the Year award.

Prior to this at the Rabobank Hockey World Cup in The Hague, Jackson made his 100th appearance for England together with Beeston's Adam Dixon.

Alongside Jackson's goal scoring accomplishment, the Champions Trophy marked a special occasion for Wimbledon's Alastair Brogdon who made his 100th England appearance in the fixture against Argentina. Tom Carson and Ollie Willars achieved their 50th caps whilst out at the tournament in India. Earlier in the year, Holcombe's Nick Catlin also joined the century club whilst competing in the Investec London Cup. Iain Lewers reached 100 combined England and GB caps, whilst Mark Gleghorne reached 50 England appearances.

In the England women's team, Maddie Hinch and Hollie Webb earned their 50th caps whilst in Mendoza, Argentina for the Champions Trophy. Like Jackson, Hinch is nominated for an FIH award - the International Female Goalkeeper of the Year. Make sure you show your support and follow this link to vote. 

Susannah Townsend and Sam Quek were awarded their 50th caps in July at the Investec London Cup and East Grinstead's Sophie Bray has also reached a half century of combined caps for England and Great Britain. Georgie Twigg reached her 100th cap for both Great Britain and England.  

England Hockey would like to congratulate all of them on their achievements and hope that there are many more caps and goals to come.
