24-year-old midfielder Georgie Twigg has a law degree from Bristol and a training contract with law firm Bird & Bird lined up in 2016. 'We are quite a superstitious team,' she says. 'If we win the first game then everyone has to sit in the same place in the changing room.'Picture: Pip
30-year-old forward Alex Danson was chosen among the 25 best hockey players in the world by Telegraph Sport. Outside hockey she loves cycling, surfing and climbing, and her personal sports hero is Olympic rower and gold medallist Katherine Grainger.
Hollie Webb, 24, studied economics at Sheffield and balances her job on the squad with a place on the finance graduate scheme at DEFRA (the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs). "It’s a completely different life," she says of her job at DEFRA. "But it also puts into perspective that I am very lucky to be able to do hockey full time."Picture: Pip
