CRAIG Cathcart has missed out on a place in the Team GB Olympic football squad.

Newspaper reports suggested last week that the Pool defender was to be named in Stuart Pearce’s 23 man squad.

However, there was no place for the Northern Ireland international who will now instead return to Bloomfield Road for the start of pre-season training on Monday.

Tom Ince and Matt Phillips were initially also sounded-out by Pearce as potential call-ups, but the former Manchester City boss chose against picking them.
