Parkes hockey master Maureen Massey is currently in the UK for a special tour with the Over 60s Australian Women’s Hockey Team.

Massey, who is the side’s goalkeeper, left for Dublin on Tuesday and will be in the UK for 14 days.

The team will participate in the One Nations Tournament in Dublin.

They will then travel to Cardiff in Wales, where more international games will be played and will travel to Oxford in England to play matches against England and Wales Masters teams. 

“I am very excited to be representing Australia once more and to wear the green and gold,” Massey said prior to leaving.

“Even if it is in a much older age division.”

Massey is due home at the end of the month, which the Parkes Champion Post will do a full story on her return.
