Kent's Natalie Seymour helped England women's hockey team achieve their best-ever World Cup performance in Argentina at the weekend.

The Canterbury Hockey Club player from Maidstone was in the side which beat Germany 2-0 in Saturday's bronze medal play-off to earn England their first World Cup medal.

Alex Danson and Helen Richardson scored first-half goals for England, and Germany failed to muster a comeback as England held on to improve on their previous best finish at a World Cup, fourth in 1990.

The squad's celebrations on the final hooter were in stark contrast to the tearful scenes that followed their 4-3 penalty shoot-out loss to the Netherlands in Thursday's semi-final.

The Dutch were beaten 3-1 by the hosts Argentina in Sunday's final.
