Martin ruled out of Champions Trophy

Harry Martin celebrates scoring against Ireland at the ILC


Beeston's Harry Martin has withdrawn from the Champions Trophy squad due to injury. The 22-year-old has suffered bone brusing to his foot and will be sidelined for around two weeks. His place in the squad will be taken by Beeston teammate Sam Ward.

Ward, who will make his England debut at the Champions Trophy, has scored 13 league goals this season for the Bees. He is well known for both his goalscoring and his charitable exploits. During the #score4scan campaign last season he scored 21 goals and raised over £10,000 for charity.

The 23-year-old takes the Beeston contingent in the squad up to four, joining fellow Bees Adam Dixon, Ollie Willars and Tim Whiteman.

England kick off their Champions Trophy campaign with an Ashes clash against Australia on December 6. They then go toe to toe with Pakistan and European rivals Belgium on December 7 and 9, respectively.
