We are delighted to be able to wish both ACT sponsored hockey players, Kaz Cuthbert and Robyn Collins, the very best of luck at this year’s Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
Kaz and Robyn have been chosen as part of the Scotland Women team and will play in Pool B against Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and Ghana. Women’s Pool A has England, India, South Africa, Malaysia, and Wales drawn together.
Kaz, whose brother William Marshall is part of the Scotland men’s team, is also going to Australia as the Scotland Women’s captain.
She said: “I am overwhelmed to be captain of our amazing squad at the Gold Coast 2018.
“I am proud that William is coming, too, and I would like to thank all my family, friends and sponsors for their relentless support.”
The Gold Coast 2018 announcement by Team Scotland and Scottish Hockey was made at Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Museum and Art Gallery with members of both squads in attendance.
Scottish Hockey CEO David Sweetman is reported as saying: “We’re incredibly proud to announce such exciting hockey squads for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
“I’d like to offer my congratulations to all the athletes selected. This announcement is a great testament to the hard work and dedication shown by each athlete in the squads.
“Our players and staff are fantastic ambassadors for hockey and we look forward to cheering them on as they compete in Australia; and we wish the whole of Team Scotland the very best of luck for April’s Games.”
