Racing bring in four new faces
Racing Club de France welcome four new players to add to their panel for the new season, building up to their Euro Hockey League date with Belgium's Daring and Ireland's Monkstown in Barcelona in October.
Chief among them is Canadian international James Kirkpatrick who made his international debut earlier in 2014 before playing in the Sultan Azlan Shah tournament. The other three new arrivals come from French clubs with Antoine Férec and Christophe Peters-Deutz - both Under-21 internationals this summer at the European championships - moving from Montrouge while David Bernstein comes in from Le Touquet.
Le Touquet is Racing's destination next weekend for the next phase of their preseason plans, playing a couple of Belgian clubs on the astroturf having spent the past weekend playing beach.
