The 14-year-old hockey player, from Breaston and a student at Trent College Long Eaton, is a member of the Leicester Ladies Hockey Club and is on the England Hockey Player Pathway.

Sarah says: "I started to play hockey at school at the age of seven, I loved it and joined a local club'.

"At the age of 12, I joined Leicester Ladies Hockey Club to play for a National Premier League club. In addition, I received a school performance sports scholarship.

"I train on a daily basis, both hockey and fitness training, and have a keen interest in nutrition.

"My ambition this year is to achieve selection to the National Age Group Squads and represent England at Under-16.

"I also hope to be successful in selection to both my club and school outdoor (Under-14) and indoor (Under-16) England Hockey National championship competitions.

'My overall ambition is to one day play for my country on a national platform.

'The ICON bursary will be a great help towards funding the coaching and kit that I need, thank you."
