Seven of the squad were part of the team that finished fourth in 2006, including Barry Middleton, who is the most-capped member of the party with 135 international appearances.
World Young Player of the Year Ashley Jackson, who plays alongside Middleton at Dutch club HGC, is making his first appearance at the Commonwealth Games along with 17-year-old Harry Martin, who is the only uncapped player in the squad.

Despite losing the elder Mantell early in their campaign, England went on to reach the World Cup semi-finals and made the final of the Champions Trophy for the first time in August.
"The squad has made good progress in recent tournaments and we will look to continue that while competing for the medals against the likes of Australia, New Zealand and Pakistan," said coach Jason Lee.
