SA Hockey Indoor Men named for December Namibia Series

The South African Hockey Indoor Men, powered by Tops at SPAR, have been named for the five match test series against Namibia in December in Cape Town. The two teams renew their rivalry after South Africa won the five-match series in Windhoek last month 3-1.

The South African and Namibian Men will both be taking the opportunity to fine tune their games ahead of the FIH Hockey Indoor World Cup in Pretoria in 2023, where for the first time two African nations will represent the continent at the showpiece event.

For South Africa the squad that did duty in Namibia remains largely intact with the recall of highly experienced Justin Domleo as well as Chad Futcher and Steven Paulo, who were part of the Indoor African Cup of Nations success. Anton van Loggerenberg who was unavailable due to his outdoor debut in Malaysia is recalled alongside Goodwin and Mngoma who did duty in Windhoek. While the experienced Ryan Julius also makes a return to the squad.
