Disclosing this here on Tuesday, SGPC sports director Prof Balwinder Singh said the selected players are Anmolpreet Singh, Harsukhpreet Singh and Ravideep Singh from the Amritsar Hockey Academy and Ajmer Singh and Manjinder Singh from the Fatehgarh Sahib Hockey Academy.
No player was selected from the Faridkot Hockey Academy, even as some of the players from the academy had been called for the trials.
