Ulster’s Iain Lewers and Mark Gleghorne have been included in the England squad for the forthcoming World League finals in New Delhi, India from 10-18 January 2014.
Lewers will be hoping to add to his current tally of 63 caps. Gleghorne, now fully recovered from recent injury, is also hoping to collect a few more caps to add to his 26 he already has.
The tournament will see eight of the world’s finest teams in action and is the culmination of a journey which began back in August 2012 when the first rounds of the competition were played.
The event features two pools of four followed by quarter-finals, semi-finals, classification and medal matches. Pool A will feature reigning Olympic and European Champions Germany alongside New Zealand, England and hosts nation India, while current World Champions Australia face the Netherlands, Belgium and Argentina in Pool B.
