Belper’s Hollie Webb opened the scoring as Great Britain’s women’s hockey team rounded off their World League semi-final with a 2-0 win over China.

Webb found the net from a penalty corner in the first half during Sunday’s encounter, before Alex Danson doubled the lead after the interval.

The victory made it seven wins from as many games at the tournament in Valencia, Spain.

The side had already secured their place at the 2016 Olympics in Rio and Webb will now be targeting a place on the plane to Brazil.

Kate Richardson-Walsh, GB skipper, praised the side after their exploits over the course of the two-week tournament.

She said: “It was an amazing performance in this tournament.

“We said at the beginning that we’d take one game at a time and build momentum, and that’s what we’ve done.

“It wasn’t our most stellar performance today but we dug in and took our chances when they came.”
