England Hockey transfers 2024/25: Phil Roper joins Old Georgians from Holcombe

Phil Roper has become the first top signing ahead of the 2024/25 Men’s Premier Division season after joining star-studded Old Georgians.

Roper, 32, makes the move from Holcombe where he had been playing since 2022 after a stint in the Netherlands.

“I’m proud to be joining this great family club as well as the English league champions and European medalists,” said the GB star.

“I hope I can add to the legacy already created and continue to enjoy the successful journey this team is on.”

Roper will join fellow England internationals Liam Sanford and Sam Ward as well as an array of current and former GB internationals.

Old Georgians won a hat-trick of Premier Division titles at the weekend following their win over Surbiton at Finals Weekend.

They became the first club to win three in a row since Cannock 20 years ago.

The ambitious club will also be aiming to better their bronze at this season’s Euro Hockey League.
