Sam Ward

Ward started cutting his teeth in the hockey world as one of the "Banana Bunch"; the name for Leicester Hockey club's mixed youth development group, which he attended with his sister. After Leicester he moved on to Beeston, where he earned a reputation as a prolific goal scorer on the domestic scene. Ward forced his way into the international reckoning over the summer of 2014 after another goal-laden season in the Premier Division.
The Holcombe striker made his Great Britain debut against France during the series in October 2014 but will perhaps be remembered more for his England debut, where he struck twice in a 3-1 win over Australia at the 2014 Champions Trophy. A natural goalscorer who isn't afraid to get in where it hurts in the circle, Ward is also another useful weapon on penalty corners and competed in his first Olympics in Rio.
