Wales senior men's hockey team have been celebrating an October double to build on their historic achievements this summer.
Firstly, they earned their highest ever position in the latest FIH World Hockey Rankings.
Then, Jacob Draper made a winning start to his Great Britain career when the Wales international was part of the GB team that beat Spain in Valencia.
Having shone for Wales during their recent EuroHockey campaign and been part of the GB U21 side that won the Sultan of Johor Cup last year, Draper made his GB senior bow as he came off the bench in the sixth minute.
His landmark followed the news that on the back of their excellent performance on their return to the elite tier of European hockey last month, Wales are the joint biggest climbers in the latest rankings as they move to an all-time high of 18th in the world from their previous spot at 25.
Just four years ago Wales were in EuroHockey III and ranked 36 in the world, but back to back promotions in 2015 and 2017 saw them this year competing in the EuroHockey Championship.
It was the first time in 20 years Wales had competed at the highest level of European hockey and their performances in Antwerp saw them retain their elite tier status for 2021.
Wales had gone into tournament as the lowest ranked team in the competition, but they produced some outstanding results including a thumping 4-0 win over Ireland - then ranked 11 in the world -in their final match.
