Maddie began her relationship with hockey at school after a PE teacher saw her dramatic ducking and diving whilst fielding a game of rounders. She started her professional career at Exmouth HC, and from there worked her way up to an international debut in 2008 and a silver medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Maddie’s career has not always been smooth sailing however, after a few set-backs at youth level and narrowly missing out on a place in the Great British Squad for the Olympic Games on home turf in 2012.

"I won't be beaten"

Maddie is now the current World Number One female goalkeeper and has over 100 caps for England and Great Britain. Maddie has a degree in Sport & Exercise Science from Loughborough University and currently plays for Dutch side Stichtsche, based in Utrecht.

Maddie is at the top of her game and has won numerous Goalkeeper of the Tournament Awards, as well as FIH Female Goalkeeper of the Year in 2016, after three previous nominations. Maddie continues to play a pivotal role in international tournaments, including England's gold medal triumph at the EuroHockey Championships 2015 and Rio 2016, where she saved all four penalties to claim the historic gold for GB and Olympic Champion status.
