International players George Pinner and Iain Lewers have agreed terms with Holcombe Hockey club for next season.
Their arrival at Holcombe comes in the wake of Gareth Carr’s departure to coach at Richmond and the retirement of leading scorer Danny Hall.
Great Britain and England goalie Pinner joins from Beeston, who he recently helped win the English Championship final.
Lewers represented GB at the London 2012 Olympics and joins from East Grinstead, who finished top of the Men’s Hockey League Premier Division.
Both have recently been in action for England at the Four Nations tournament over the weekend in Dussledorf, Germany, alongside their new club team-mates Barry Middleton and Dan Fox.
All four started for England in their final game of the mini-tournament, against Belgium. Lewers scored in a 3-2 defeat.
Holcombe chairman David South said: “These players are coming in to freshen the team up with some departing.”
Fox and Middleton are both on board for next season and Mr South says more players could arrive.
“We’re talking to another couple of internationals who we hope to sign,” he said.
“We remain committed to bringing through our own talent and we have just replaced departing players with others. We’re very pleased with the two signings so far.”
