Former East Grinstead star Barry Middleton is planning an upset as England prepare to take on the Netherlands in the World Cup semifinal today. Fourth seeds England finished runners-up in Pool A and must now beat Pool B winners Netherlands – the third seeds and hosts – in order to reach Sunday’s final. Four current East Grinstead players are in the squad for the game, including Ashley Jackson, pictured above, who won his 100th cap for England in Monday’s crucial group win over Belgium which secured a last four berth. He is joined by Mark Gleghorne, David Condon and Iain Lewers, who will join Holcombe after the tournament.
