*Statistics as of 19 June 2022

Head coach David Ralph selected a squad of 18 women and two reserves for the FIH Hockey Women's World Cup 2022.

There are a total of nine players playing in their first World Cup. Sophie Hamilton, Holly Hunt, Flora Peel and Lily Walker are lining up for their very first major international tournament, while Fiona Crackles, Sabbie Heesh, Tess Howard, Shona McCallin and Izzy Petter play their first World Cups.

At 20, Walker is the youngest in the group and only made her international debut in April of this year.

Twelve of the squad represented Great Britain at last summer’s Olympics in Tokyo. With three Olympic medals to her name, Laura Unsworth is the squad’s most-capped player and is set to make her 300th international appearance this summer. Captain Hollie Pearne-Webb and fellow double Olympians Giselle Ansley, Maddie Hinch and Lily Owsley each have more than 100 England caps to their name.

Young reserves Darcy Bourne and Lizzie Neal play an important role as they travel and train with the squad for the whole tournament.

Surbiton Hockey Club have five representatives in the 18-strong squad, while three East Grinstead players have been selected.
