Albery set to make GB senior debut in Germany

A total of 24 athletes have been named to travel to Mannheim, where they will contest three matches between 13-16 November. The squad also includes three NTU alumni, Ollie Willars, Adam Dixon and David Ames.

In January of this year, Albery was selected as part of the England Men’s Hockey training squad in preparation for Tokyo 2020, so this selection is a step in the right direction for the NTU student.

Albery plays for Beeston Hockey Club and is also part of the NTU men’s first team. He is currently studying BA (Hons) Business at NTU, and has been balancing his training with his studies. Albery is based near the England Hockey training centre in Bisham Abbey, and due to the Academic Flexibility Programme at NTU, he is able to split his studies over an extended period of time, and study from a long distance.
