Former Harleston Magpies star Tim Whiteman featured for Great Britain in two draws against Argentina last week.

Whiteman, who now plays for Beeston Hockey Club, was introduced in the fifth minute of the first test at Bisham Abbey last Thursday, which ended 1-1. Ashley Jackson’s penalty corner cancelled out a strike from Lucas Vila.

The following day the two sides played out a scoreless draw, this time with Whiteman playing from the start, going close to breaking the deadlock in the third quarter with a strike from a narrow angle.
