Old Georgians strengthen ahead of England Hockey title defence

Old Georgians have confirmed their new additions for the upcoming season as they set about defending their English title, starting with an away trip to newbies University of Nottingham on Sunday.

England Under-21 internationals Josh Pavis and Stu Kentwell (both from Beeston) link up with the club along with South African international Matt Brown who played several Pro League matches in 2022.

Will Dibiase (St George’s College) and Oscar Jensen (Nottingham Uni) are other young stars added to their panel for the season.

They will make their EHL debut as English champions having topped their national league last April with a couple of games to spare. It continued a remarkable rise having only earned promotion to the top tier in England in 2019. That was just a year on from being in the relegation playoffs in 2018.

They added the English Cup for good measure and they look forward to their EHL bow with a side packed full of international experience.

Andy Bull is the one departure, moving to Beerschot in Belgium. 

The Premier Division starts on Sep 25 before Old Georgians make their EHL debut against SV Arminen on Oct 1.
