Tom Wickham

Tom Wickham (hockey) will make his second Commonwealth Games appearance in Birmingham after being a late call-up to the Gold Coast 2018 team after injury to Blake Govers. Born and raised in Morgan in South Australia’s Riverland, Wickham spent time growing up in Alice Springs before moving to Perth in 2011 to take up a scholarship with the Australian Institute of Sport. He made his Kookaburras debut in 2013 but was unable to add to his two caps that year until a breakout 2017 when he played all 32 games for the calendar year and scored 15 goals, including a double in the Oceania Cup final win against New Zealand. He was also part of the side that lifted the World League title that year. The Perth Thundersticks’ striker was named as one of two reserves for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic team, but a rule change allowed reserves to be used in the tournament, scoring six goals as part of the silver-medal winning team.
