Slough Hockey Club hosted Olympic champion and GB hockey captain, Hollie Pearne-Webb, during an exclusive junior training session.

On the morning of Sunday, November 20, the club held a training session for those aged six to 18.

Nealy 100 juniors attended, with the club declaring the session a 'huge success'.

For many Pearne-Webb is a 'hockey hero', with juniors coming from surrounding clubs and schools including Staines, Reading, Wycombe, Windsor and Yateley, to attend the session.

Club chairman at Slough HC, Harjit Sandhu, said: "We were more than honoured to have Hollie Pearn-Webb, the current GB and England captain, visit us and help with inspiring the next generation of hockey players in the area.

"She is a legend of the game and well-respected around the world and we were super excited to welcome her to Slough.

"Sport is so unifying and teaches us all so many valuable lessons both on and off the pitch.

"Hollie is a fantastic role-model and we hope everyone that attended had an amazing time."

The morning consisted of a Q&A session where the children got to ask Hollie questions about her career, how she started and how she feels about being the captain of England and GB.

They then all went out onto the pitch where they got to train with Hollie and a team of coaches from Slough HC.

The day finished up with lots of autograph signings, photos and selfies with Hollie and her two Olympic medals from Rio and Tokyo.

Hollie's visit comes after Slough HC raised £640 for the 'Going for Gold' Challenge set by England Hockey and Alzheimers Research UK, in support for GB Olympic legend Imran Sherwani who is currently living with the disease.

As a result of being one of the hockey clubs that raised the most amount of funds for this initiative, England Hockey rewarded Slough HC with an exclusive training session.

Slough HC has a mixed junior section catering for both boys and girls aged six to 18 years old, welcoming all players of all abilities to come and give hockey a go.

Sessions run every Sunday from 9am, for more information visit
