England and Great Britain captain Kate Walsh Q&A

Bright future: Kate Walsh is confident Great Britain have what it takes to win gold at London 2012 Photo: PA

England and Great Britain defender Kate Walsh talks to Telegraph Sport about her dreams of winning an Olympic gold medal, captaining her country and life after hockey.

You're part of a very sporting family was playing hockey always on the agenda for you?

No. My mum played hockey and I said I never wanted to because I though standing on the sideline freezing when I watched her was the worst thing ever – but then I tried it and loved it and there we go.

I loved all sports – I was a swimmer before I played hockey only at county level but I chose hockey over the pool because they said you had to get up early in the morning to swim.

I think it's just in my jeans to be active. My sister plays hockey and my dad played cricket and football so there was always sport going on in our family.

You made your international debuts for England and GB in 1999, what sacrifices (if any) have you had to make along the way?

Well I did work before the Olympics in Beijing and I don't do that any longer so essentially I no longer have a career but it's not a sacrifice it's a choice. I want to win gold and I can't do that and work. Personally I have to focus on hockey and so it's a choice not a sacfirice – I have no regrets.

What is it like to captain your country?

I first went captain in 2003 and I'd been in the side four years by that point and I was quite a young captain.

It's part of my game anyway to be vocal on the pitch and instruct – that probably just lent itself to begin captain but were things off the pitch I had to learn. Initially you think it may just be about walking the team out and that you're the link between the manager and the players but it's so much more. It takes a lot of time to grow into the position.

Do you ever think about what you may do when your hockey days come to an end?

I try not to think about it because it's quite a daunting thought but I think I will have to in the next few years because I think 2012 will probably be my last thing – I'll be 32 by then. But we have careers advisers so they'll be on at me to think about it.

Maybe a future in coaching?

I think it's hard to say because at the minute I'd say no because hockey is what you do everyday and I may want to do something else but then again it may be different in a couple of years time.

What can be done (if anything) to improve British hockey?

We need to win. We need some success. You see how the men have done it at the Europeans and they did well at the World Cup and saw the benefits.

Maybe we just need a little more support – not just from UK Sport – but from the public. We need to break that barrier of 5th/6th7th and get into the top four.

How about the funding hockey gets?

Honestly, if you look at cycling and rowing they get the funding because they've been so successful and I'm not going to moan about that because if you want the funding you have to be successful.

Would you make any changes?

I think right now we're in a really good place. There's been a lot of changes to improve it regionally. Everything is far superior than it was when I started playing.

If you had to choose would you rather win the World Cup, a Commonwealth Games gold or Olympic gold?

I'd like all the golds but the Olympic gold is the dream. When I watched it [the Olympics] when I was young I sat there thinking 'I want a gold medal'. To stand on that podium and hear the national anthem. When I see people in that position you want it to be you and your team.

Barker and Poland share first caps

Photo: Kaela Barker on the left, Crystal Poland on the Right

A special moment took place on Tuesday night as long-time hockey friends Crystal Poland and Kaela Barker shared their first caps playing against India this week in Surrey, BC.

Poland, of Crofton, BC, started playing field hockey in grade 8 and her athleticism and raw talent did not go unnoticed. In her grade 10 years she was apart of the AAA provincial championship team at Cowichan Secondary school and from then on knew she would be pursuing field hockey further. Contrarily, Barker, of North Vancouver, BC, was submersed in the field hockey world since both her older sisters played and her step Aunt, Jen Chohan, was one of her long-time coaches.

Barker was apart of Southerland Secondary’s field hockey team that captured the AA Northshore championships three years in a row. As well, she was apart of the BC gold medal team at the Western Canada Games in 2007.

Both Barker and Poland competed against each other at the U14 BC Summer Games and several provincial tournaments but as these two athletes began to take the sport to the next level they found themselves competing together more often. Barker was recruited to Northeastern University where she was named CAA Rookie of the year (2008-09). A year later, Poland also joined the Northeastern clan and not surprisingly was also named CAA Rookie of the year (2009-10). Both Barker and Poland were crucial to the Northeastern’s offence with Barker controlling the middle of the field and Poland capping her first year off with 12 goals.

After earning her first international CAP on home soil, Barker exclaimed that “it is a real honor to play for your country! I am very excited to gain international experience and bring that experience back to Northeastern.”

Poland, on the other hand, said, “I was really ecstatic to have made the fitness standards required to play India and I really feel like I am meant to be here!”

Both girls greatly contributed to Canada’s first exciting match of the 4-game test series against India. Poland had assists on both of Canada’s goals and it will be no surprise to see these two continue to take it to the next level throughout the week.

Look forward to more Canada-India field hockey action as the team takes on India three more times on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday!

Unbeaten defending champs KZN Inland meet Southern Gauteng in U16 hockey final

School sports weeks


THE final of the SA U16 Boys' Interprovincial Hockey Tournament on Pape's Astro at Maritzburg College at 1.15 pm Friday sees hosts and defending champions Kwa Zulu Natal Inland meeting Southern Gauteng.

Inland, the only unbeaten hockey side here, beat Border 3-1 Thursday in a semi-final scoreline that doesn't do justice to the fine performance of the East London boys, while Southerns downed Western Province 2-1 in a tempestuous semi-final that saw eight players sent to the sin-bin, including three after a single play.

Umpires for this much-awaited 16 hockey final, Cole Milton and Henno Pretorius, will be under huge pressure to deliver Friday after five days of hockey in which Inland and Southerns have given their all in striving for this moment where they are on the brink of South African hockey championship honours.

Inland's goals against Border went to Jordan Turnbull and a Tim Guise-Brown double, while Border replied through Keanu Brittnill. In the other semi, Southerns scored via the sticks of Daniel Bell and Stuart Philip with Rushin October netting for WP.

It will certainly be a feather in coach Brandon Swart's cap if his well-drilled KZN Inland team can deliver him back-to-back titles after their triumph in Potchefstroom last year, and South Africa hockey schools can be proud of the quality of play among many boys here in Pietermaritzburg.

And in Potchefstroom, the Girls' U16 IPT hockey final will be contested between KZN Coastal and Border Friday, while KZN Inland will play for ninth place having beaten North West 4-1. At the time of publication, no other information was available regarding the IPT results.

Meanwhile, it was a good day for KZN at the national U16 and U13 rugby weeks.

KZN U13 beat Zimbabwe 15-0 in Graaff-Reinet with tries from Daniel Rust, Franco Erasmus and Jeandre Bekker, while KZN U16 beat SWD 21-15 in Upington with tries from Abraham Swart, Dian Boshoff and Jonathan Le Roux. Siyabonga Tom added three conversions.



Boys' U16: KZN Inland 3 Border 1; South Gauteng 2 Western Province 1; SWD 1 EP 3; South Free State 0 Eastern Gauteng 3; WP B 2 North West 0; KZN Coastal 1 Northern Gauteng 0; Border B 9 NFS 0; Boland 2 Limpopo 0; Inland B 6 Mpumalanga 0; SG B 4 North Cape 1; Limpopo 2 NFS 0; Boland 2 NC 0.


U13: Limpopo 17 Border CD 5; Valke 7 Pumas 5; Griffons 24 Free State 8; Blue Bulls 8 Lions 7; WP 22 Leopards 6; Griquas 27 Namibia 5; Border 12 SWD 0; KZN 15 Zimbabwe 0; EP 10 Boland 5.

U16: Lions 22 Border 22; Leopards 50 Border CD 0; Valke 26 Griffons 7; KZN 21 SWD 15; Namibia 20 Griquas CD 18; Limpopo 15 Free State 13; Boland 15 EP 5; Griquas 13 Pumas 5; WP 33 Bulls 14.

European tour: a worthy exercise

S. Thyagarajan

Chennai: Even as the confusion in hockey administration is getting complex, complicated and confounding for an enthusiast, India enters the action mode early next month.

As part of the preparations for the Commonwealth Games, and more importantly, the Asian Games in China, the team embarks on a three week tour of Europe opening with the four-nation tournament at Hamburg from July 2 to 4.

Taken in any perspective, it is a well thought out exercise. Competition in Europe definitely enhances the team's profile. It adds to professional approach and a pronounced polish in proficiency.

Apart from playing Germany and the Netherlands in the BDO Masters at Hamburg, the squad plays against Belgium, France and Holland.

The 22-member team is a good mix of young blending with seasoned stars.

While the omission of the most valued mid-fielder Arjun Halappa, has triggered a debate over the reasoning of the selectors for ‘resting' a player of his eminence for a European sojourn, the recall of Sandeep Singh is the right move.

Perhaps, the selectors have realised the folly of going into the last Azlan Shah tournament without a flicker. Mahadik was forced to revert to flicks after the experiment of indirect essays flopped miserably.

Retaining goalkeepers, Sreejesh and Chetri, confirms the selectors' lack of confidence in Adrian after the World Cup. Neither of them was exemplary at Ipoh. But they need more exposure especially, against European outfits.

Added value

Sandeep adds value to the defence purely on account of his competence in penalty corners. However, he has a few known frailties in one-to-one interceptions. Mahadik is an established defender along with Sardar Singh. Rupinder has a long march ahead to earn a permanent place. So is Amit Prabhakar.

In Halappa's absence the stress in mid-field work on, Gurbaj Singh and Prabhodh Tirkey, will increase manifold. Both have enough experience to guide. Ravi Pal, Ajitesh Roy and Danish Mujtaba should play a very demanding role to help Gurbaj and Tirkey maintain an element of vibrancy to connect with the frontline.

Shivendra Singh, who is nursing an injury, will be missed in the attacking line, notably in seizing rebounds. Skipper Rajpal Singh and Tushar Khandekar, should elevate their level of play to cover up for Shivendra Singh. The gangling Mandip Antil gets a good chance to prove his calibre as does Hari Prasad. This is a golden opportunity for Hari Prasad.

It is unclear how much say the chief coach, Jose Brasa, has in selection matters; very little, obviously. Given the ridiculous gag order not to interact with the media, it is not easy to get an assessment from the genial Spaniard, whose pragmatism irks a few.

It is unfortunate that a country which boasts of honouring the virtues of freedom of expression prohibits its chief coach from attending even post-match riefings. Jose Brasa must be allowed to rub shoulders confidently with his counterparts in Europe during the tour.

HI takes offensive stance, Gill unfazed

Shubhodeep Chakravarty

Hockey India on Thursday warned players against participating in the national championships, which will be organised by Indian Hockey Federation (IHF), the rival body, in Bhopal next month.

Re-emphasising that HI is still the recognised body for hockey in India, Stokes said that the players should refrain from participation in unauthorised tournaments.

“Strict disciplinary action will be taken against all those who participate in tournaments which are not authorised by Hockey India,” HI president Vidya Stokes said in a statement.

HI was instated when IHF was disaffiliated on charges of corruption in 2008 but a recent court ruling questioning the manner in which IHF was dismantled has breathed a new lease of life into the body and expectedly, leading to HI’s new found insecurity over its future.

While Stokes said the authority to organise local and national tournaments lay completely with HI, IHF remains committed to its plans of organising the championships. IHF President KPS Gill was unfazed about the warning issued. “There are a lot of aspiring hockey players in the country. We don’t care about the warnings and despite it, I am sure that we will enjoy good participation,” he told HT. Gill also added that talks with Indian Women’s Hockey Federation are underway and a formal meeting would be organised later this month.

Despite all warnings and self-assurances, HI seem to be facing a determined IHF that is leaving no stone unturned in their bid to revive.

HI warns players against playing in IHF-organised national championship

NEW DELHI: Power struggle in the national game intensified on Thursday with Hockey India (HI) warning players against participating in next month's men's national championship in Bhopal organised by the rival Indian Hockey Federation (IHF).

Reinstated by a recent Delhi High Court order, the KPS Gill-led IHF in a Special General Body had earlier this month decided, among other things, to host the championship in Bhopal from July 4-18.

Hockey India, which came into being last year following IHF's disaffiliation, however, warned teams and players against participating in the "unauthorised" tournament.

"It may be noted that strict disciplinary action and penalisation as deemed fit would be taken against all those teams and players who participate in such kind of unauthorise tournament," Hockey India President Vidya Stokes said in a statement.

"Hockey India has not given any permission for conduct of the men's national championship at Bhopal from 4-18 July, 2010," she added.

Insisting that HI is the only recognised hockey federation in the country, Stokes said, "Being the only recognised national body for both men and women hockey in India, it is the sole prerogative of Hockey India to conduct the national championships and also to grant permission for the holding of various domestic tournaments besides sending various teams to overseas competitions including the Commonwealth Games, Asian Games, World Cup and Olympic Games," she said.

Malacca in right frame of mind to lift first hockey title

INJURIES to two key players will not dampen Malacca’s spirit in their bid to win a first Sukma men’s hockey title when they meet defending champions Kuala Lumpur in the final at the Malacca Hockey Stadium today.

Malacca, who have goalkeeper Mohd Harfizi Baharom and defender Fawwaz Amir Mohd Zin as doubtful starters, will draw confidence from having outplayed KL 5-1 in a group match.

KL have two national players in their ranks in defender Mohd Razie Abdul Rahim and midfielder Nabil Fiqri Mohd Noor and they will be gunning for a fourth consecutive title since the 2004 Games in Seremban.

Malacca coach K. Balakrishnan said that there was concern over the fitness of skipper Harfizi and Fawwaz.

“Harfizi has played exceptionally well in the Games. He injured his left wrist in the semi-final against Perak (on Wednesday) while Fawwaz is down with a knee injury,” he said yesterday.

“I not sure whether both of them can play in the final. But with or without them, my boys have vowed to give their best.

“Malacca are in their first men’s hockey final since the inception of Sukma in 1986. We have home ground advantage but getting the better of KL will be no easy task.

“Although they lost to us in the group match, they will still start as favourites after having thrashed Penang 7-2 to get into the finals and will start out as the favourites.”

KL coach K. Rajan said that the pressure would be on them to retain the title.

“However, my players have showed improvement in every match and I believe that they will rise to the occasion to win the final,” he said.

“We will bank on Razie to deliver the penalty corner goals (the defender scored a hat-trick against Penang).”

Zafri resists hiring of expensive foreign coach

From Abdul Mohi Shah

ISLAMABAD: While Ministry of Sports has asked the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) to come up with a comparative proposal on hiring a foreign coach, Col (rtd) Zafar Zafri, member executive board confirmed that he had strongly resisted the move to hire Mitchel Van Den Heuvel at a whopping amount of 15000 euro per month.

The PHF president Qasim Zia met the Sports Minister Aijaz Hussain Jakhrani in an effort to get his approval on the federation plans to hire a foreign coach on a record monthly salary of almost Rs 1.6 million per month.

“The Ministry has asked the PHF to come up with a proposal on hiring of coaches, with comparative foreign and local coaches options. Though the Ministry has no objection on hiring a foreign coach, we would only confirm or reject the option once we get it in black and white,” Minister of Sports Aijaz Jakharani, said.

Earlier, when a group of journalists met the Minister during the First Anti Doping Seminar in Islamabad, he expressed his ignorance over PHF’s move to hire the coach.

Later in the evening PHF president met him and officially requested his backing to hire a foreign coach on a record salary.

“We would only give our acceptance once we get the written proposal.

“The PHF officials have promised to send one within a short time,” a Ministry official when contacted said.

The PHF president Qasim Zia when confronted by journalists after the meeting with Minister, was reluctant to confirm the offer the PHF had extended to the Dutch coach for training Pakistan senior team.

“Obviously when you plan to hire a foreign coach, he is bound to ask for a heavy return. I am in no mood to confirm or deny how much we are to offer the foreign coach.”

Former international hockey player Col (rtd) Zafar Zafri who has recently been appointed by Qasim Zia on the federation executive board, however confirmed while talking to ‘The News’ that he the PHF board has given approval of Dutch coach hiring on record purse of Rs 1.6 million per month.

“That is true that the board in spite of my apposition has approved hiring his service on a record monthly amount of 15000 euro per month. It is unjust to all the former Olympians who have served the country and are much better coaches than what we can find from abroad,” Zafri said.
