LILY BRAZEL – HOCKEYROOS
With finals just around the corner now it is exciting to hear that our other Aussie star, Lily Brazel, will be back in the FHC colors within the coming weeks. Based in Perth at the Australian Institute of Sport’s hockey campus, Lily has just been to Europe again with the national squad, called up to bolster the squad through their bronze medal game at the recent women’s world hockey cup.
In honour of our two national representatives, Ben and Lily, a substantial new display of their national uniforms has now been mounted in the centre of our trophy cabinet display area. Check out the different materials and styles evident over the 60 year time gap in-between Ben and Lily’s national service.
