Hockey goalie  from Guildford

Raph Robeson is a 17-year-old hockey player from Cranleigh. Robeson now represents Wimbledon Hockey Club alongside her England age-group commitments and helped them win promotion in their last league match before lockdown took hold last year. She was a keen footballer in her younger days and began life between the sticks five years ago having had it recommended to her as the only position on a hockey field where kicking the ball was an option. And although hockey may have been her primary sport for several years, she is also a keen runner and swimmer who has embarked on two relay swims across the channel for charity. You can find out more about Raph in the video below.

We asked Raph how the fundraising boost will help her

“There are so many kit costs as a keeper when you play a lot – the padding, the helmets and all the rest – so it means a lot to have that support. It’s difficult for everyone at the moment but this is really motivating and inspiring.”
