A TEACHER has made it into the England Masters World Cup Hockey squad.

Martine Green, 41, from Higher Kinnerton, a PE teacher at both The Queen’s Lower and Senior Schools in Chester, won her place at the Masters World Cup after a rigorous selection procedure involving two trials.

Martine, who is a forward, has worked as a PE teacher at Queen’s since 2009 and teaches hockey, athletics, gymnastics, tennis and netball.

She now plays at Chester Hockey Club but previously played and captained the Sefton-based Liverpool Hockey Club for 14 years in the National League.

The FIH Masters World Cup 2014 is being held at HC Rotterdam, one of the biggest European clubs. The tournament will see legendary players of the past battling it out for the respective titles in the 40-plus, 45-plus, 50-plus, 55-plus and 60-plus age categories between June 5 and 13.

It is expected about 70 national teams with more than 1,000 players will take part in the event.

Martine said: “It has been my dream for as long as I can remember to play for my country and to finally be able to say that I do makes me really proud. I’m grateful to everyone who has helped me get here.”

Despite securing a place in the team, Martine still needs to raise sponsorship to fund her travel expenses for the trip. If anybody is interested in sponsoring her, contact her through the Lower School office on 01244 382843 or email
