Sam Ward

Sam Ward is a natural born goalscorer. His prowess in the circle saw him force his way into the international teams in 2014 and he has gone from strength to strength since.

A huge threat from both open play and penalty corners, Sam has established himself as one of the deadliest attackers in world hockey and scored eight times in the inaugural FIH Pro League after missing the 2018 World Cup through injury.

He was also found the back of the net more times (nine) than anyone else at the 2018 Commonwealth Games and will be hoping to replicate this at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Before becoming an international hockey player, Sam worked as a car salesman and now plies his trade domestically for Old Georgians, having previously featured for Leicester, Holcombe, Beeston and Loughborough Students.
