Hockey transfers 2019/20: Latests ins and outs in English Premier Divisions

 

Wales co-captain Lewis Prosser, right, moves from Surbiton to EG PIC: David Kissman

Transfers should be a major talking point when it comes to domestic hockey. Unfortunately, news is harder to come by than a bumper crowd at an English league game. Here, we list the transfers we do know about, while we will be adding to the list in the coming days after requesting information from clubs. It’s all part of our #watchyour1s campaign, where we are urging elite to grass roots clubs to boost attendances. Win your club £500 and more!

Email newsdesk@thehockeypaper.co.uk with any player transfers.
