A tough tackling defender from Durham University, Fiona burst onto the international scene in late 2020 when she made her senior GB debut against The Netherlands in the FIH Hockey Pro League. Despite the magnitude of her opponents, the young defender was unfazed and helped the team - missing 10 players through injury - secure a creditable draw.

She impressed once again in the following games - being named Player of the Match in just her fourth appearance against Belgium - and was rewarded by being offered a full-time place on the senior programme in January 2021.

Crackles became the latest player to graduate from the GB Elite Development Programme in the process, having previously featured for GB in a non-capped friendly against India in October 2019. She also captained England's U18 team at the 2018 EuroHockey Youth Championships as they secured an impressive bronze medal.
