King’s Lynn head coach Danny Kerry sees GB hockey girls book London 2012 bronze

Sarah Thomas scored GB

Sarah Thomas scored GB's third goal as they secure bronze at the London Olympics.

King’s Lynn head coach Danny Kerry saw his Great Britain women secure only the second Olympic bronze medal in their history with a 3-1 victory over New Zealand at the Riverbank Arena.

Reading striker Alex Danson opened the scoring with a penalty corner deflection in the 45th-minute to reflect the hosts’ dominance of play.

With 11 minutes remaining Leicester defender Crista Cullen flicked home a set-piece and even later Wales international Sarah Thomas diverted in another corner before Stacey Michelsen’s consolation.

The result provided some compensation after missing out on gold with Wednesday’s semi-final defeat to Argentina.

Bronze equalled the feat of the team from 1992 in Barcelona and was the minimum target prior to the London Olympics.
