Somerville would like to welcome Katie Glynn - our new women's premier coach!

Since her selection in 2009, Katie amassed 134 international caps for New Zealand and scored 77 international goals becoming the highest female goal scorer in New Zealand Hockey history. She brings with her a wealth of experience and we look forward to having her as part of Somerville Hockey Club

Favourite Position - Of course a striker - I loved to score goals, that was my role in most teams, and something I worked really hard at!

Worst Injury - Probably too many to list! Tearing my ACL was a tough challenge to come back from but obviously my back injury ending my career would be the worst.

Best advice - Practice makes perfect... if there is something you can't do, go out and practice until you master it. Was something I did a lot as a kid, with my brother out in the back yard!

Favourite way to relax - I love music, and water - any beach or lake etc I find very relaxing - and I love movies. Spending time with friends and family always helps as well.
