The England woman’s hockey team, which features Belper’s Hollie Webb, have won gold at the EuroHockey Championships.

They came from two goals down to beat Netherlands on penalies and win the tournament for the first time in 14 years.

England had won silver two years ago after they were beaten by Germany.

But goals from Sophie Bray and Lily Owsley ensured the side went one stage better this time out.
