Govers into top squad
AUSTRALIAN goalscoring machine Blake Govers has been promoted to the men’s senior hockey squad, following the teenager’s outstanding performances recently for the national side.
Hockey Australia reconfirmed its national senior and development squads yesterday to include Govers as the Kookaburras ramp up their preparation ahead of the Rio Olympics next year.
The 19- year- old accepted a Hockey Australia scholarship following his performances in the World League and in May’s Tests against Pakistan, New Zealand and Korea in Hobart.
Govers finished as the top goalscorer at the Hockey World League semi- final in Antwerp, finding the net seven times in as many games.
