Scotland men’s captain Chris Grassick makes his long-awaited comeback after injury in a key Great Britain clash with The Netherlands in the FIH ProLeague at lee Valley in London on Friday (7.30pm and live on BT Sport).

He joins his international and club team-mate Alan Forsyth, who also plays for top English side Surbiton, in the men’s squad, while former Edinburgh University striker Sarah Robertson (Hamstead and Westminster) has been named in the women’s squad against The Netherlands at Lee Valley on Saturday in a sold-out clash.

Edinburgh-raised Grassick (pictured with the trophy) last played for Great Britain’s men more than 18 months ago and men’s head coach Danny Kerry said: “It’s been a long road back and it’s been good to see him (Chris) looking sharp in training despite months of rehab.

“On a personal note, it’s always good to support our athletes through these long phases and it’s a credit to Chris in terms of his perseverance in testing circumstances.
