England Youth Battle Well at Partille

ENGLAND’s youth handball teams passed a major milestone this week when both the boys and girls teams secured their first victories at the prestigious Partille Cup in Sweden.

The English teams attended a special Olympic Solidarity programme prior to the main Partille Cup, where they received special coaching twice a day as part of a programme to help developing handball nations improve.

After that, they were much-improved in the Partille Cup proper, with both the England side’s recording their first ever victories in the Cup.

The England boys team beat Norwegian side Reistad/Assiden 15-9, while England girls won 10-4 against Danish outfit Saeby HK.

Scottish team Tryst’s Under-18 boys won one game and drew another, while the Under-16 girls were unlucky to lose all their games, although they only lost their final match to Schiffdorf by two goals.

And Edinburgh-based Gracemount also played well, losing all five of their games but gaining important experience which helped them battle well in their final match against Haltern-Sythen which they only lost by three goals.
