Leamington Hockey Club will be represented on an international stage this summer, after one of their players was selected for England.
Sarah Gambling has been called up to the 18 woman national squad for the masters Home Nations competition in June and the European Masters Championships in August.
Her selection comes after playing for England in a practice game against National League side Bristol Firebrands last September, where she scored the only goal of the game.
Even though the tournaments are a few months away yet, Sarah is already excited about her call up and looking forward to playing.
She said: “Needless to say I am very happy and proud to have been selected for the England Masters squad - all of my hard work has paid off and I’m excited to play for my country!”
Sarah will be part of the England squad competing in the Home Nations tournament in Dublin from 23-25 June and the European Masters Championships in Tillburg, Holland, from 11-19 August.
