RAF's Emily Dark Makes Scotland's Eurohockey Championships Squad

RAF Regiment reservist Emily Dark has been called up to join Scotland for next month's tournament.

Royal Air Force reservist Emily Dark has been selected to represent Scotland at the upcoming Eurohockey Championships.

The RAF star will join the team for the tournament being held in the Netherlands between 4 and 13 June.

Dark joined 603 Squadron last year to train as a reservist in the RAF Regiment and is hoping to become the squadron's first-ever female RAF Regiment Gunner.

While not playing international hockey or training, Emily is studying physics at St Andrews University in Scotland.

The news comes as Senior Aircraftman Liam Sanford was also selected to take part in the Eurohockey championships, representing England.

SAC Sanford has been a key player in defence for both England and Great Britain for the last few years including an impressive summer at the World Cup in 2019.
