Great Britain, now in Pool D of the Champions Trophy, faced Germany at the North Harbour Hockey Stadium, in an afternoon match in Auckland.  Before the start of the game England Hockey’s Chief Executive Sally Munday made a presentation to both Ben Hawes and Glenn Kirkham who were playing their 200th game for Great Britain and England combined.  James Fair was back in goal after recovering from a bruised foot which kept him out of the game against Spain.  George Pinner and Ken Forbes sat this game out.

Ashley Jackson Champions Trophy 2011

The first few minutes of the game started brightly for Great Britain, playing in white and blue, with East Grinstead pairing Ashley Jackson and Barry Middleton working the ball well through the middle and linking up with their teammate Mark Pearn.  Pearn fed the ball into the circle and managed to find Jackson who sent a teasing ball across the goal.
