Glasgow 2014: Wales name men's hockey squad for Games

Wales squad

Wales head coach Zak Jones has named a 16-man hockey squad for this summer's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The squad includes his brother Huw Jones, who played at the 2002 Games in Manchester - the last time Wales' men qualified for the Commonwealth Games.

Two other brothers, James and Daniel Kyriakides, are included in the squad.

Lewis Prosser, son of former Wales and Great Britain captain David Prosser, is also named.

"The Commonwealth Games gives the selected 16 a fantastic opportunity to test themselves against some of the best nations in the world," Zak Jones said.

"The final selection of the 16 has been incredibly difficult, which is a huge credit to all the players that have been involved in the senior men's programme over the past 18 months.

"The group have remained fully engaged and united throughout, and the standard and intensity of training has never been higher."

Wales squad: David Kettle (Surbiton), James Kyriakides (Swansea), Michael Shaw (Sheffield Hallam), Benjamin Carless (Team Bath Buccaneers), Peter Swainson (Oxted), Richard Gay (Southgate), Lewis Prosser (Gantoise), Liam Brignull (Cardiff & Met), Matthew Ruxton (Team Bath Buccaneers), Huw Jones (Oxted), Owain Dolan-Gray (Cardiff & Met), Rhys Gowman (Cardiff & Met), Nicholas Rees (Exeter University), Andrew Cornick (Oxted), Gareth Furlong (Sheffield Hallam), Daniel Kyriakides (Cardiff & Met)
