HOCKEY: Prosser earns Commonwealth Games pick

First published in Sport

FORMER Dauntsey's School student Lewis Prosser has been named in Wales 16-man squad ahead of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow next month.

Marlborough's Prosser played for Team Bath before moving to play in the Spanish Premiere League in Santander in 2012.

The ex-Marlborough Hockey junior helped Wales U21s to a silver medal in the European Championships in 2010 and Great Britain U20s to bronze in the Youth Olympics in 2009.

Coach Zak Jones said: "The final selection of the 16 for the Commonwealth Games has been incredibly difficult, which is a huge credit to all the players that have been involved in the senior men's programme over the past 18 months.

"The group have remained fully engaged and united throughout, and the standard and intensity of training has never been higher."

The opening ceremony for the Games is on July 23.
