Nate Reinking will coach Great Britain in person for the first time in three years against Greece and Turkey this month.

The US-based playcaller has named a 24-man squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Greece in Larissa and Turkey in Newcastle.

Myles Hesson returns after signing a deal to remain in the Japanese last week and, with Ben Mockford, is primed to earn his 50th cap.

Kyle Johnson, Sacha Killeya-Jones, Ovie Soko, Josh Steel and Devon Van Oostrum all return to a squad which has won 12 of it past 15 games.

Amin Adamu, Jaiden Delaire, and Amari Williams receive their first senior call ups following successful seasons in NCAA Division I, whereas Patrick Whelan and Callum Lawson could also be on track to earn their first caps in this window having featured in GB squads previously.

Belarus’ expulsion mean GB have already secured qualification for the Second Round of World Cup 2023 results from the First Round carry over.
