One of the most exciting forwards in world hockey, Will has made plenty of people take notice since making his international debut in June 2018 with both his penchant for scoring outrageous goals and sporting some funky hairstyles.

A natural finisher, he netted 10 goals in five games for England at the 2017 U21 Euros before finding the target for the senior team twice at the 2018 World Cup, his first major international tournament.

He also produced two brilliant finishes for GB against The Netherlands and Germany in the 2019 FIH Hockey Pro League and helped Hampstead & Westminster to a first Men’s Hockey League title that same year, scoring in the semi-final. He was also a reserve for GB at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

He earned bronze with England at the 2022 Commonwealth Games on home soil as well as representing them at the 2023 World Cup and 2023 EuroHockey Championships.

Will, most recently, helped GB qualify for Paris 2024.

With pace to burn and a sharp sense of humour, expect to see plenty more fireworks from Will as the years go on.
