Great Britain named their squad for the men’s team for the upcoming FIH Hockey Olympic Qualifiers, on Monday.
The 18-member men’s squad will be captained by Adam Dixon who has been an important figure in the Great Britain team, as well as in providing veteran leadership.
Great Britain’s both teams (men and women) are scheduled to take part in the two-legged FIH Hockey Olympic Qualifiers at the Lee Valley Hockey Stadium in London on November 2 and 3 where the men’s team will be up against Malaysia, while the women’s hockey side will face Chile.
33-year old, Adam who has 265 caps ( combined for England and Great Britain) to his credit, has played in all the big competitions and at the club level for many years. He has also made his Olympic bow in Rio in 2016.
The Great Britain men’s team squad will also see Welsh star player Jacob Draper make his appearance. Liam Stanford, who was missing in action due to a knee injury will also be seen making a comeback.
