Cheshire man makes Team GB Hockey squad

31 year old missed out at Bejing

A Cheshire man has been selected to represent Team GB in men’s hockey at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

31 year old goalkeeper James Fair plays for Cannock.

He said: "I am really proud to be selected for Team GB, especially at home in front of a British crowd. After having the disappointment of being a travelling reserve for Beijing I am hoping to put that behind me and perform to my best. The team have worked extremely hard over the past four years and selection has been really tight - hopefully we can do something special for the guys not picked.”
