No Need to Gild This Lily

Club member Jenny must be immensely proud of her daughter Lily Owsley who last night scored the first goal as Great Britain’s Women’s Hockey Team beat the Netherlands in an amazingly close final which saw an heroic performance from the team’s goal keeper who made three stunning saves in the match and then kept out four Dutch attempts in the penalty shoot out as the England ladies converted two of their five attempts – perhaps our male footballers should take some lessons from women’s hockey on winning penalty shoot outs. Well done Lily on your gold medal, everyone at Bristol & West is immensely proud of your achievements – athletic’s loss has definitely been hockey’s gain.
