Laura grew up as a keen sports lover and played every sport possible, it was only at secondary school that she was introduced to hockey at a ‘pre-season’ session before starting school where she was delighted to be asked to join the school team. However, that weekend Laura was riding a friend’s horse which fell and landed on her, breaking her leg, resulting in a cast until Christmas.
A year later, Laura’s hockey career really began and she grew a love for it; working her way back up and eventually into the school team. She quickly progressed through to county and the East of England. Here, she was asked to trial for Wales.
Laura was selected for the Welsh U17 team and progressed through the age groups to U18, U21 and senior teams. She proudly captained her country at U21 level and gained 16 senior caps overall.
- European Indoor Silver medal (senior)
- European Indoor 4th place (senior)
- U18 & U21 European Championships
- Selected for the Senior team to play in the World League tournament plus a number of test series.
