HOCKEY: Souyave rethinks England policy
Richardson, of Fyffes Leicester, who won her one and only cap against Japan last Wednesday, is one of four changes to the England team which won a silver medal at the Commonwealth Games. Also new to the squad, which has been increased to 18, are 19-year-old Kate Walsh, Anna Bennett, Lorraine Catchpole, Sue Chandler and Leisa King. But Lucy Newcombe, Kerry Moore and Jennie Bimson are dropped as Souyave appears to have re-thought her youth policy. Slough's captain, Chandler, is recalled at the age of 32 and five of the squad are over 30.
ENGLAND SQUAD (for World Invitational, Milton Keynes 4-8 August; European Cup, Cologne 18-29 August): K Brown (capt), J Smith, A Bennett, M Nicholson, S Chandler, F Greenham (all Slough), J Sixsmith, H Rose (Sutton Coldfield), K Bowden, H Richardson (Fyffes Leicester), L Catchpole, L King (Ipswich), M Clewlow, J Empson (Canterbury), T Cullen, C Reid, K Walsh (Hightown), L Wright (Olton).
