This year’s edition of the EuroHockey Championships which has been brought forward due to Covid-19 and will take place between 4th and 12th June in Amstelveen, Netherlands.

The Championships is one of the most prestigious tournaments in World Hockey with 8 of the best teams in the world fighting for the trophy, as well as an opportunity to qualify for the Hockey World Cup.

England will face Russia, Spain and current champions and the number 1 ranked side in the world, Belgium. From the group the top two sides will progress to the semi-finals.

Goodfield’s selection is his first England call-up since 2018, following a return to the Great Britain squad in October 2020.

The former Telford man and son of club chairman Gwynne Goodfield, came through the club’s junior ranks from the age of 10 and was an integral part of the U18 boys’ side that reached the England Hockey National Finals in 2011.

After being a part of the Men’s 1st XI for several seasons, Goodfield moved away from the club at 18 for Sheffield Hallam University and following a successful spell at Harvestehuder THC, he is now an instrumental player for current England Hockey National Premier League Champions Surbiton.

Men’s Club Captain Alan Parham says “We are all very proud of David for his achievements, especially after a short spell out of the side. It takes great commitment to represent your country and he is a great ambassador for the club. We wish him all the best and will be watching the championships with a keen eye”.

Sadly due to Covid Gwynne and wife Sue can't make the trip out so will be supporting David from Admaston rather than Amsterdam.

The Men’s and Women’s EuroHockey Championships will be covered live on BT Sport.
