The club are delighted to see that Alan Forsyth has been selected in the new GB Men's central programme who will be coming together to prepare for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Alan joined the programme in the build up to last years Rio Olympics but was unable to break into the final squad despite an impressive season which saw him named player of the year and also top the scoring charts in England. Alan is joined in the squad by fellow Scot Chris Grassick and both will be working hard over the coming years to make the final squad in 3 years time.
Alan is a fantastic role model for all at Kelburne, having worked his way through the ranks from jockey hockey, making his 1st team debut at 14, before going on to play a key role in a number of league and cup victories for the Men's 1st team, with the most memorable being scoring the winner against Grange to win the Scottish Cup with 2 seconds left in the game.
Although based in Surbiton, Alan is a regular at club events when he returns to Scotland and is a great example of hard work paying off, he has come a long way since his days on the grass at Whitehaugh and all at the club wish him well in his quest for selection.
