Hockey international Giselle Ansley to return to familiar surroundings

Released: 19.05.14


Great Britain and England hockey international Giselle Ansley is set to return to familiar surroundings on Tuesday (May 20) when she makes a special visit to University of St Mark & St John, Plymouth.

Devon-born defender Ansley was an integral part of the Surbiton side who claimed top prize in domestic women’s hockey last month when they won the England Hockey Women’s Premier Division championship play-off.

Now an established international hockey star with over 30 international caps, the 22-year-old from Kingsbridge, will return to her former club Plymouth Marjon for a junior awards presentation evening.

Ansley will be guest of honour and present prizes at the Plymouth Marjon Hockey Club Junior and Youth Awards in the Drama Theatre at the University on Tuesday from 6.30pm.

University of St Mark & St John lecturer in Physical and Coach education Jamie Oxley – among those who coached Ansley as a youngster at Plymouth Marjon Hockey Club - said: “Giselle will be turning up an hour before the official presentations to meet up with our young players and offer them some top hockey tips.

“She’s an ideal role model because she’s gone from being a junior here through the senior ladies’ side to playing international hockey at the highest level.”
