April 19, 2014

Ireland coach Craig Fulton has announced his squad of 18 for the upcoming Pahang Hockey Champions Challenge I in Kuantan. The squad has been announced off the back of two tests against England.

Commenting on his first international tournament as Coach Fulton said “It is exciting to select some new faces and have some of the senior Internationals back for Champions Challenge I. It will be a good challenge to test ourselves against higher ranked opposition with New Zealand, Japan and Poland in our Pool. The obvious objective is to finish as high as possible as world ranking points are on offer.”

Fulton has selected one uncapped player with Maurice Elliott from Pembroke Wanderers being called into the squad. The national team will depart for Malaysia on Thursday and compete against New Zealand, Poland and Japan in their pool while Spain, France, Korea, Malaysia and Canada make up Pool B.
