The pair will arrive fresh from their Rio exploits to host a coaching session with Chichester’s talented junior players.

Young guns will be treated to a goalkeeping masterclass from Great Britain’s number two MacKay, while Bray will take an outfield class.

Chichester chairman Simon Pierce believes it will be great to have the girls come down so soon after the Olympics.

He said: “To have two Olympians come down and take a session will be great for everyone at the club.

“They have been a real sensation in these Games so far and hopefully they’ll be able to come to us with a medal on show.

“It’s going to be a real benefit for all junior members at our club to take some tips from these class players.”

The event takes place on Wednesday, August 31 from 6.30pm to 8.30pm at Chichester College.

Juniors aged from ten to 18 will be involved and as well as the pair coming along, a signed Rio shirt will be presented to Chichester Hockey Club.
