It proved to be third game lucky for Barry Middleton’s Great Britain, who finally got their first Pool B win at the FINTRO Hockey World League Semi-Finals with a hugely convincing triumph over China in Antwerp.

Nick Catlin, Sam Ward and Mark Gleghorne both scored doubles in the rout to help GB move into second place in the pool, ahead of hosts Belgium but behind Malaysia.

Catlin was the first GB player to make their mark on the score-board, slapping a high ball into an open net to finish off a decisive attack, with Ward and Gleghorne netted second quarter goals before China’s Li Zecheng made the score 3-1 at half time.

Four Great Britain goals arrived in the third quarter, the pick of which came from a brilliant back-hand effort from Ashley Jackson either side of fine finishes from Gleghorne and Ward before Alastair Brogdon and Catlin completed the scoring.

When asked to sum up his feelings about the game, GB’s Nick Catlin said: “We were much improved today, as we were looking to bounce back from our disappointing performance against Ireland (2-2), so I’m really pleased with what we did out there. When you play well, the scoreline kind of takes care of itself. We want to finish as high in the pool as we can, and we know that if we win the next game we will be in a really strong position.”

Great Britain’s final Pool B match will be against current table-toppers Malaysia on Sunday (28 June), while China will be back in action on Friday (26 June) when they face Ireland.
