England first team to arrive for Junior World Cup


England junior men’s hockey team became the first team to arrive in New Delhi for the 10th Junior World Cup hockey tournament beginning at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium from December 6.

The English team went through the paces at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium as part of their preparations for the marquee event.

England are placed in Pool D alongside South Africa, Malaysia and New Zealand.

England will launch their campaign on the opening day of the event against South Africa.  They play New Zealand on December 8 and will wrap up their league assignments against Malaysia on December 9.

England have never made a podium finish in the junior World Cup. Their best effort came in the 1997 and 2011 editions in Milton Keynes (England) and Hobart (Australia), where they bagged the fourth position respectively.
