HistoryEdit

Marjorie Pollard played hockey nearly every year for England from 1921 to 1937.[2]

The team toured New Zealand in 1938 and the US in 1947. Notable players were Barbara and Bridget West, Hilda Light and Mary Russell Vick. The teams had to play in long stockings whatever the heat until they were replaced with split skirts and knee high stockings.[3]
