Having played internationally more than 200 times by the age of just 26, Harry is in line to become one of the most capped England and Great Britain players of all time.

He was just 17 when he made his international debut in 2011 before appearing at the London Olympics the following year and, despite being the only teenager in the squad, played a vital part as GB narrowly missed out on a medal. So impressive were his performances that year that Harry was also shortlisted for the 2012 FIH World Young Player of the Year award.

A key component of the team with his exceptional work rate and consistently high level performances, Harry unfortunately suffered a serious quadricep injury in January 2021. However just four months later he was back playing international hockey and featured for England at the EuroHockey Championships before he was selected as a reserve for the Tokyo Olympics shortly afterwards.

Harry was then selected for the winning GB Squad that played in Argentina, where he played 3 out of 4 games, helping them to go top of the table after the first mini-tournament. He also became one of the top 5 GB Cap Holders off all time.

He was selected for the 2023/24 opening round matches of the FIH Pro League.

His sister Hannah is also a star of the women’s team and she says Harry has been one of the biggest inspirations in her career so far.
