Before Maddie Hinch came along, young hockey players dreaded being asked to pull the pads on and jump in the line of fire.
It’s now one of the most popular positions in the game, a reflection of Hinch’s influence as one of the sport’s great goalkeepers.
She owns most of hockey’s biggest prizes, including Olympic and European gold.
Hinch returns for her third tilt on Team England with the aim of upgrading the silver and bronze medals she won at Glasgow 2014 and Gold Coast 2018.
