England star Jo Hunter
Former Aylesbury and current Surbiton and England star Jo Hunter (now Pinner) will be coming to the club on Sunday 22nd October to run a special training session for the Under 8s and Under 10s.
Jo is one of a current crop of Aylesbury Juniors to make their way into the England set up alongside Oli Hassall (U16s), Alice Rolfe (U18s), Lauren Thomas (U21s), Bob Gregory, Pete Wright (both O60s) and current England colleague Zoe Shipperly.
Jo played for Aylesbury as a junior making her 1st team debut as a teenager before moving to Buckingham and onto Beeston, Leicester and finally Surbiton where she has won the Premier League title and gone on to establish herself in the England side recently winning a bronze medal in the EuroHockey Championships.
Jo's relationship with Aylesbury is a family one with sister Gemma a regular ladies 1st XI player and brother Chris a regular in the men's 1st XI.
The details of the session are still to be confirmed however it is expected Jo will lead the U8s in the first part of their session from 9:45 to 10:15 before taking over the U10s until 11:15. It is then hoped the U10s will be able to put into practice what they have learnt and impress Jo with some small sided games against a side of Thame Juniors until around midday.
For anyone else who is around I am sure Jo will be happy to have a few photos and sign a few autographs.
