Jonty Clarke, one of four players brought into the Great Britain Olympic training squad after the disappointing performances at the Olympic Qualifying event in Madrid in March, has been dropped. This in spite of an outstanding display for his club Reading in last month's Cup final and without playing a single game for the national side.

This in spite of an outstanding display for his club Reading in last month's Cup final and without playing a single game for the national side.

He is one of four players out of the squad. Guildford's Jason Collins is surprisingly the only player from the Madrid party, so far, to be sacrificed. Reading's Rob Todd and Cannock's Andy West are the other two dropped as squad numbers are cut towards 16 for Athens.

GREAT BRITAIN TRAINING SQUAD: B Garrard, J Wallis, B Hawes, J Peckett (Surbiton), S Mason, T Bertram, M Pearn (Reading), J Ebsworth, R Moore (Teddington), J Lewis, R Garcia (Gross Flottbecker), G Fordham, D Hall (Guildford), M Johnson, M Jones, C Parnham, B Middleton (Cannock), J Goudie (Loughborough Students), D Mathews (Amsterdam) all England; G Dunlop, D Mitchell, G Moodie (Western Wildcats), N Stott (Dundee Wanderers) all Scotland.
