The LEN European Age Group Championships alternate yearly between U19 and U17 age groups, and for 2016 the active age group is U19.
In May 2016, the GB U19 men, led by Head Coach Tim Dunsbee, travelled to Antalya, Turkey 2016 and secured 3rd place in their European Qualifying Round. Unfortunately this was not enough to see them progress as qualification required a top 2 finish, but the experience and skills acquired were invaluable for this squad of players who now move up to the Senior ranks.
Attention now turns to our next competitive GB men’s age group men’s squads, which will be our U17s (2000 YOB) in 2017 and then our U19s in 2018 (1999 YOB).
Our media pack for the GB 1997 men’s team including full team sheet information and squad pictures is here
