ENGLAND Under-18 Girls clinched the bronze medal at the EuroHockey Youth Championships in Santander, Spain, after beating Belgium 2-0 on Saturday afternoon.

In their last match together as a squad, they rose to the occasion and dominated against a tough opponent.

Head Coach Sarah Kelleher said afterwards: “I’m very happy that we’ve managed to win the bronze medal, but they deserve it after a great performance.

“The girls worked very well from the get-go, we always knew the Belgians would give us a tough game so we went out hard from the start. We played excellently in defence, but also looked threatening in attack and played great fluid hockey.

“It was a great overall team performance. Every player rose to the occasion and played to their best.”

England took the lead in the 17th minute with Georgie Bathurst scoring at a penalty corner from a second phase rebound off the goalkeeper.

And on the hour mark, Charlotte Calnan doubled their advantage with a spectacular drag flick, again at a penalty corner.
