Susannah Townsend

A fierce competitor, Townsend made her international debut back in 2008 and was part of the Great Britain team that won Olympic Gold at Rio 2016.

The Canterbury player has become an integral part of the England and Great Britain squads with her speed and power, turning heads with her lung-bursting runs from midfield and her ability to break the line when in possession. 

Townsend has already passed the century mark in appearances for her country and was also part of the team who memorably won European Gold on home soil at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre in 2015.
