England World League Finals

England have named their 18-man squad to travel to the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in Ipoh in Malaysia between 3 and 10 March.

The squad heads out to Malaysia looking to lift the trophy which a number of England athletes won in May 2017 playing as Great Britain.

Australia, India, Ireland, Argentina and hosts Malaysia make up the other sides competing with the tournament providing good preparation ahead of the Commonwealth Games in April.

England head coach Bobby Crutchley said: "We are very excited to head out to Malaysia for the tournament with very fond memories from Great Britain's victory last year.

"The standard of the opposition is very high which will give us strong tests as we build towards the Commonwealth Games in April."
