    COLLEGE STUDENT WINS FIRST ENGLAND HOCKEY CAPS

    December 7th, 2012

     HENRY WEIR’S hockey adventure Down Under eventually hit the rocks after England were defeated 2-0 by hosts Australia in the quarter finals of the Champions Trophy.

    The 22-year-old Loughborough College student has won his first senior international recognition during the tournament as England seek to build for a brighter future after Team GB were disappointingly beaten into fourth place at London 2012.

    Weir, also a key player for Loughborough Students in the top flight of men’s hockey, helped his country out of a tough group in which they faced gold medallists Germany as well as India and New Zealand, who have claimed the Olympic title 12 times between them in the past.

    England were defeated 3-1 in their opening encounter before they turned the form table upside down by thrashing Germany 4-1. Weir was heavily involved in one of the four strikes as he pressurised Mats Grambusch into putting through his own net.

    Tuesday’s creditable 1-1 draw with New Zealand eased England through in third place in their group but with a very difficult tie against the Aussies. They largely matched their hosts in the first half before a slip by the Loughborough College student in the circle allowed Australia to break and Dwyer to open the scoring. The second goal came from Ciriello with 17 minutes left.

    England are now set to play Belgium tomorrow (Saturday) to determine whether they will play off for fifth or seventh place in the competition between the world’s eight leading hockey sides.
