Springham & Fox get GB call up

Two England Hockey athletes have been drafted into the Great Britain men's squad for the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in Malaysia.

Due to injury, Bowdon and England forward Alastair Brogdon and Reading and Scotland forward Stephen Dick have withdrawn and have been replaced by Reading’s Richard Springham (top image) and Hampstead & Westminster’s Dan Fox (bottom image).

Brogdon has been struggling with a stomach injury in recent weeks while former Inverleith athlete Dick, who is in his first season with Euro Hockey League semi finalists Reading, sustained bone bruising after being hit on the knee while playing for the Berkshire club in their successful European quarter final on Monday.

Great Britain’s campaign gets underway against the hosts Malaysia at 13:05 BST on Thursday 5 May.
