After receiving a nasty concussion nearly a year and a half ago, hockey hero Shona McCallin is getting closer to making her comeback.

Shona, 27, of Dry Doddington, was part of Team GB who brought home gold in the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil, but has been on the sidelines for months after a collision on the pitch in a match in a warm-up tour in Argentina in February 2018, while playing for Great Britain.

She said: “I was hit on in the wrong place on the soft side of my head. It wasn’t the biggest of impacts but I wasn’t prepared for it, which is what made it so bad.”
