That’s right. A list of fine goalkeepers (and me) who now have something in common: I am delighted to announce that I have agreed a deal this season to join the Mercian Hockey Family!


Having spent a long time obsessing over the new Elite range as worn by Pinner and Lovell, I am like a child at Christmas having got my hands on some of the kit myself. I will be posting a product review once I have had a chance to give it a proper run out.

As well as the shiny new kit, I will benefit immensely from this new partnership in other ways. I will have more access to the Mercian sponsored athletes and as a result some more content for both the website and the podcast – keep your eyes peeled for that.

In the meantime, if you need a new stick, some kit, a new bag or anything else, you know where to go!
