Long tipped to succeed on the international stage, Esme made her debut for Great Britain during the 2019 FIH Hockey Pro League and immediately won many fans with her all-action style of play across the pitch.

Esme then made her senior tournament debut with England at the 2021 EuroHockey Championships, helping them qualify for the following year's World Cup.

One of many members of the squad who have graduated from the GB Elite Development Programme, Esme caught the eyes of many when she was selected for the 2016 U21 World Cup aged just 17. She scored two goals during that tournament before bagging the winner to secure bronze at the 2017 U21 Euros a year later.

She has also played in the Vitality Women’s Hockey League for a number of years, firstly at Beeston and now with the University of Nottingham, and brings plenty of energy and physicality whenever she steps on the pitch.
