HOCKEY: CATHERINE Forshaw has England hopes and Olympic dreams.
She is the 17-year-old goalkeeper already picked for the North Under 18s and there is still a possibility of an England call this season.
Realistically, she stands a better chance next time around.
'That's my goal,' she said. 'I want to carry on playing through university. There's no money in hockey but I definitely want to play for England and even Great Britain. The Olympics would be amazing but there's a long way to go.
'I love playing goalkeeper. It's the best position, great fun, though at times you can be left in a hopeless position. But I can get angry at my de-fence and I shout constantly.'
Catherine, of Dalefords Lane, Sandiway, is a sixth former at Queen's School, Chester, and plays for Deeside Ramblers, who are mid-table in North One, two levels below the national game.
She has had three England trials and the squad is still being finalised, following the northern tournament.
Catherine added: 'They said they would inform us before Christmas, so you never know...'
