Even though it is only mid-June, I am pleased to confirm that we have completed all of our targeted summer signings. The acquisition of four new players, with both England and GB experience, will enhance the Men's and Ladies' 1XI current squads. These signings, alongside our existing squads, combined with the continued progression of our 2nd and 3rd XI Men’s and Ladies players, plus our exciting fast moving junior section, I hope bodes well for further success.
Barry Middleton has taken part in the last three Olympic Games and captained Great Britain's mens team at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Barry has over 270 GB appearances and a wealth of experience to back it up. Barry arrives from HGC (Holland).
Dan Fox arrives from Hampstead and Westminster HC. He made his international debut in 2009, and recently competed for Great Britain at the London 2012 Olympic Games, finishing fourth place overall.
Laura Unsworth, part of the London 2012 Olympic Games Bronze medal winning squad, made her senior international debut in October 2008 and has since continued to add to her list of international honours. Laura arrives from Loughborough Students.
Maddie Hinch played for Leicester HC last season, and has the GB number 1 GK place firmly in her sights, plus a place at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
We look forward to welcoming Barry, Dan, Laura and Maddie to Holcombe HC and seeing what next season will bring to the whole club.
