REPOST from FHC: LILY BRAZEL NAMED IN HOCKEYROO'S TEAM!
FHC's Lily Brazel has gained selection in the Hockeyroos (Australian National Women's Team) for the International Festival of Hockey from 6-12 November held in Bendigo and Melbourne, followed by a 3 Test Series vs Japan in Adelaide. This will be the first 'cap' for Australia for FHC's Premier League Co Captain. What a tremendous and outstanding achievement!
Lily performed strongly in Japan with the Australian Development Squad and then at the recent Australian Hockey League. She has been a member of Footscray Hockey Club since 2016, when she moved to Melbourne from Sydney and joined the Women's Premier League team under coach Lachie Anderson.
Australian coach Gaudoin stated: “Lily has impressed during the camp at the start of the year. She had a very strong Development Tour of Japan and backed up with her performances with the winning Victorian team at the AHL in Perth." FHC has had one Australian on field representative, Bob Acton in 1950 - 1954. Lily becomes the 2nd Australian player for our proud club, and hopefully many more to follow in her footsteps.
Well done Lily, we are all so very proud of you!
