Stratford AC's Pozzi named in England's Commonwealth Games squad
STRATFORD AC'S Andrew Pozzi has been selected by Team England for next year's Commonwealth Games in Australia.

"I'm delighted to have been selected to represent England at the Games in Australia," said the 25-year-old, who will be desperate to impress on the big stage after struggling at the 2016 Rio Olympics in and World Championships in London last summer.
"England has a superb history in the 110m hurdles at the Commonwealths and I'm excited to have the opportunity to continue this.
"The Games is a key part of a very exciting 2018 season for me where I hope to build on the progress I made in 2017.
