Susannah Townsend

A fierce competitor, Townsend made her international debut back in 2008 and was part of the central squad in the lead up to the London Olympics. The Canterbury player missed out on selection but since the London games she has become an integral part of the England and Great Britain squads. A quick and powerful player, the No9 has turned heads with her lung-bursting runs from midfield and her ability to break the line when in possession. After a superb year in 2014, the 26-year-old was named Hockey Writers' Club Women's Player of the Year. Townsend has already passed the century mark in appearances for her country and seems set to continue to collect caps for years to come. Townsend's 2012 heartbreak was laid to rest in 2016 in Rio as the Canterbury player competed in her first Olympic Games and collected a gold medal.
