Here is a quote from our Head of Women's Sport Sarah Robertson:
"After a short time in the role it’s exciting to see some of the progress we are making. There is a great appetite to do more to support the growth of Women’s Sport and ensure we are producing world class products for everyone. International Women’s Day provides a great opportunity for us to stop and reflect on our journey so far, and to look ahead and think big."
Sofia Martin signs International contract
We are very pleased that Sofia Martin, who has recently been selected for the Great Britain Elite Development Programme (U23s), has agreed to sign an International contract with Grays. Sofia has made this achievement aged just 17. Grays have sponsored Sofia for the last 2 years and are pleased to be able to offer her continued support as her career develops.
Outside of hockey Sofia has played age group football for Tottenham Hotspur F.C. Women and attained nine grade 9s at GCSE.
“I am grateful to have had Grays support my hockey career so far and so thrilled to be continuing my journey with them as a GB EDP Athlete.”
Break The Bias
“The theme for this year's IWD, 'break the bias', is a call to action. The fight for gender equity has, for too long, placed responsibility at the door of women and girls, but we all need to recognise the gender bias that exists within the systems that govern our workplaces, our schools and colleges and our communities. But it doesn't stop there, recognition isn't enough, we all have a responsibility to actively call out gender bias, discrimination and stereotyping whenever we see it and stand together with those that do.”
The International's Choice
Grays have supported some of the very best women to have played the game.
This is a tribute to them.
