Englishmen on target for GB

With fewer than 450 days until the London 2012 Olympic Games, Great Britain’s men got their Sultan Azlan Shah Cup campaign off to a winning start thanks to goals from three Englishmen.

Surbiton’s James Tindall, Loughborough Students’ Richard Smith and Wimbledon’s Rob Moore all scored in Great Britain's 3-1 victory over hosts Malaysia in Ipoh on Thursday.

In the heat and humidity of Malaysia, Head Coach Jason Lee handed Iain Lewers his Great Britain debut in a starting XI that included Reading’s Euro Hockey League hero goalkeeper Nick Brothers and saw East Grinstead’s Glenn Kirkham wearing the captain’s armband.  Dan Fox also made his GB debut, coming on from the bench.
