Tough start for Great Britain’s senior men, who lost 28-0 (6-0, 6-0, 7-0, 9-0) to double Olympic champions Serbia on day one of their European Qualification Tournament campaign
Excellent experience for all of Nick Hume’s squad, playing against world class professional opposition. Next up for Great Britain is a clash with the hosts Turkey on Saturday evening, 5pm start UK time.
Great Britain’s senior men lost 2-19 (0-6, 0-5, 2-3, 0-5) to the hosts Turkey in their second game at the European Championships Qualification Tournament on Saturday
Manchester and Coventry’s Jordan Elliot and Sedgefield’s John Pratt offered some brief respite for Great Britain with a goal each in the third quarter, but Turkey proved too strong and were deserved winners.
Chelmsford and Manchester’s Dan Paddon scored four well-taken goals against Slovakia on Sunday morning, as Great Britain’s senior men finished their European Qualification campaign with a 7-17 (1-5, 3-4, 2-6, 1-2) defeat to Slovakia
Coventry and Manchester’s Jordan Elliot (1), Exeter’s Kamz Powell (1) and Sedgefield’s John Pratt (1) were also among the goals as Nick Hume’s squad produced their best performance of the tournament.
After tough losses to double Olympic champions Serbia and hosts Turkey, it was good to see Great Britain causing Slovakia a lot more problems.
All great experience for the team as they continue to build for the future.
