Graduate Tim Nurse wins first senior England Hockey caps as Team Bath Buccs history-maker Liam Sanford reaches milestone

21 February 2022

University of Bath graduate Tim Nurse made his senior England Hockey debut when the national men’s team travelled to Argentina for a FIH Hockey Pro League double-header in Buenos Aires.

Nurse, who was supported by a King Sporting Scholarship as he combined hockey and studying Sports Performance, came off the bench for his first cap in Saturday’s 2-0 defeat and also got game-time in the following day’s 3-1 reverse.

Team-mate Jack Turner said after Saturday’s match: “It’s great to get some new boys in and Tim played really well in his first game.”

Tokyo Olympian Liam Sanford, who was the first Team Bath Buccaneers player to be capped by England while still playing for the club, made his 50th appearance for his country on Sunday.
