Dan Fox – Team England Hockey PlayerOn GreenFields TX World Cup Hockey Field
After training on the GreenFields hockey pitch, Dan Fox expresses his confidence the artificial turf will be consistent with his game:
“We arrived yesterday so just getting used to it. Preparations are good. The setup and the stadium look amazing.”
The pitch is very good. For a new hockey pitch it has good grip and is quick. We like fast pitches, especially over in England as it is similar to what we train on. We have enjoyed it and are looking forward to playing on the main hockey pitch.
“You know the pitch will be consistent and the ball will roll evenly…”
We like a fast hockey field to play on generally. The key is for it to be true and the bounce is even so its flat to play on. Then for penalty corners and general passing play you know it will be consistent and the hockey ball will roll evenly. It’s been good so far. Also it’s not slippery which can sometimes be the case with new pitches; this one seems good underfoot. We are really pleased with it so far.
We are pushing for a medal. It’s a tough group with quality teams; Australia, Belgium and the other three. We start with Spain on Saturday which will be a difficult game. We are definitely looking to make the semi-finals and see how it goes from there.
