Guy fordham has announced his retirement from international hockey

Guy won his first England cap in 1995 against Kazakstan in India and amassed a total of 87 England Caps and 84 GB caps.

The highlights of his international career were competing in the Sydney and Athens Olympics and winning a bronze medal in the Commonwealth games in Kuala Lumpur. His greatest disappointment, however, was not being selected for the Atlanta Olympics.

Guy is a Major in the Royal Army Medical Corps and is currently completing his General Practice Training prior to being posted as a Regimental Medical Officer.

Said Fordham “I am finishing on a high note after competing in the Athens Olympics; playing some of the best hockey I have played, but now it is time to concentrate on work and family. I a looking forward to new challenges at work but will continue to play hockey for the Army and Combined Services”

David Whittle who has been Guy’s Team Manger for the duration of his international career said “We will certainly miss Guy’s tenacious ball winning capabilities in midfield, together with his highly competitive nature. The Army has provided tremendous support to Guy during his international hockey career and we wish him well for the future.”
