Mark Gleghorne

Despite narrowly missing out on selection for the 2012 Olympic games, Mark has been a big part of the England team since 2011 after playing hockey in Holland in 2009 and taking a year off in 2010 due to a foot injury. He played for the Ulster and the Ireland international squad from 1998 - 2008, after which he transferred to play for England and GB. A qualified PE teacher, Mark has been involved in sport and hockey since he was six years old, and after several years of club hockey he moved to Loughborough University to study sport science and play for the Students. He's a tough and hard working forward, and his penalty corners are something to watch out for! He competed at his first Olympics in 2016.
