GEORGE PINNER RETURNS TO MERCIAN HOCKEY

Since then, Pinner has gone on to represent his country 139 times. On 24th May 2017, Pinner was named as one of a three-man captaincy group in a new structure, for England and Great Britain
“To be able to bring George back to the brand, joining a growing number of international star ambassadors, is a glowing endorsement to the progress we have made over the years. George is a world class goalkeeper with a growing achievement list and currently shortlisted for World Goalkeeper of the Year. We are looking forward to supporting George on his journey to Tokyo 2020”. – Simon Mason, Managing Director, Mercian Hockey.
“I’m delighted to be rejoining Mercian. I was lucky enough to have the support of the company when I made my junior International debut aged 15 and in the early years of my senior career. I am incredibly grateful to have their support once again. Following the recent re-brand the company is firmly on the rise, making it an exciting time to be joining Mercian Hockey and the other Mercian Ambassadors moving forwards. Simon and the team are very driven to improve their already excellent product range and reputation in the goalkeeping market, I’m incredibly fortunate to have their support in helping develop, along with Monarch co-founder Nick Barton, a new range of kit which I can’t wait to start using.“
“In what is an exciting year on the pitch with the Commonwealth Games and World Cup fast approaching, I’m delighted to have the support of such a great brand behind me.” George Pinner, Great Britain & Holcombe.
Pinner joins a strong stable of international experience at Mercian, with Scotland’s Tommy Alexander and New Zealand’s Devon Manchester already brand ambassadors in the men’s side of the game.
