Welsh hockey player Sarah Jones will mark a huge milestone in her career as she plays in her 100th game for Wales this Saturday against South Africa.
Cardiff born Sarah made her senior debut for Wales in 2011 against Scotland and has been a mainstay of the team ever since. Having played in the 2014 and 2018 Commonwealth Games, she is heading into her third consecutive Games this summer in Birmingham.
Reflecting on her 100th appearance in a Welsh shirt, Sarah said “It feels like a long time coming! I’ve played for Wales for 11 years – it’s been a massive part of my life, especially my adult life.”
“I feel incredibly proud to have played for my country 100 times. I can’t say that I remember all 100 games – there’s probably some I wouldn’t want to remember if I’m honest! – but it’s been incredible to share those experiences with people.”
“I’ll be very proud on Saturday.”
Alongside representing Wales, Sarah is a member of the Great Britain hockey squad and is fast approaching 150 combined appearances for Wales and GB.
