Harleston Magpies will have six players representing the club on the international stage in Australia in the coming months.

Most of the group will be heading to the International Hockey Masters Association World Cup, which is being held at the National Hockey Centre in Canberra from March 28.

Club chairman Murray Graham will be representing Scotland at over-55s level, with the others all donning England colours.

Kath Johnson (O40s), Tristan Baynes (O40s) and Philip Cobbald (O55s) are all flying Down Under, as is Andy Law (O50s), who has been guesting for Magpies in the O50s knock-out cup.

David Blackmore (O60s) will be competing in the World Grand Masters World Cup in Newcastle, in New South Wales, in May, where England will face Japan, Malaysia and the Home Counties.
