Monica Jones – Knowlesis a Belper Ladies GK and is pictured here at the World Cup in her kit, complete with Welsh flag, having just suffered a 5 – 0 defeat to England.
Monica joined Belper Ladies 2003/4 and was part of the Ladies team who secured promotion into National League. Prior to this she’d been playing Notts League. Currently playing Ladies 1s.
Lifelong ambition has been to represent Wales at a sport and thinks that she and Mozza just go to show that international opportunities aren’t only open to younger players. She would like to thank Belper HC for all the support helping her to realise her dream.
Mozza currently plays for Belper HC 1st XI in the National League and was the England Hockey League Conference Player of the Season 2009. He is in his 3rd year in the Masters Over 40s having won numerous indoor and outdoor titles in his career. He will tell you given the opportunity that height isn’t everything. Gets a single digit squad number for the first time!
