We are delighted to announce that David Kettle is to join HWHC this season.
Kettle is the the current number 1 goalkeeper for Wales, after making his debut in the 2009 World Cup qualifier against New Zealand. He has since gone on to win 60 senior caps, competed in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and 3 European Championships, and is preparing for the World League in September.
Kettle also brings a huge wealth of experience from the domestic game too, making the move to central London from Surbiton where he won the EH cup in 2013 (although we forget who the final was against), and played in the Euro Hockey League. Previously having won the Premier League twice with Cannock and once at East Grinstead, two further cup titles with Cannock and more EHL experience with the Midland side and East Grinstead. Away from the UK he played two season with Bankstown in Australia and one campaign with Sapura HC in Malaysia.
On the move to Maida Vale, Kettle said, “I’m really excited by the vision that Kwan Browne has for the club; there’s a lot of quality within the squad and I’m looking forward to the challenge of winning national titles with HWHC. Culture is really important to me & I’m looking forward to being part of a positive and progressive club, on and off the field."
His experience of challenging at the top of the Premier league will be invaluable to HWHC this year we can't wait to see him on the pitch for us.
