Pegler Yorkshire has provided kit for Team GB Underwater Hockey teams

Brassware manufacturer Pegler Yorkshire has sponsored the Team GB underwater hockey squad, helping provide kit for Under 19s and Under 23s Mens and Ladies teams.

Underwater hockey, also referred to as Octopush, has been around since the 1950s and now has 105 clubs across England, Scotland and Wales.

Pegler Yorkshire chose to sponsor the sport, as its technical training support manager Glen Schofield has been coaching Octopush players in Great Britain.

Having played for many years, Schofield coached the U23s Ladies team to take part in the World Championships in Castlellon de la Plana, Spain and has helped GB Men secure Bronze.

Glenn Schofield commented: “Sponsorship is of paramount importance to allow our teams to enter national and international competitions and develop their skills and confidence as individuals and as a team. Our thanks go to Pegler Yorkshire for its support and we look forward to delivering great results in the future.”
