England Awaits Regional Championships

SOME of the best young handball talent England has to offer will be on show this weekend at the EHA Regional Youth Championships in Birmingham on Saturday.

The event is being staged at the Birmingham International Futsal Arena in Handsworth, and will see teams of boys and girls from counties across the country do battle in the first round of matches.

Schools up and down the country have been busy unearthing their most talented athletes, who are now representing their counties.

Mick Hegarty, the EHA’s Director of Performance, said: “Last year's regional championship was a tremendous success with the most talented players going on to represent England at the Partille Cup in Sweden.

“Fifteen of those players are now in the AASE Programme studying handball for the next two years, and we certainly expect to find more players in this second year.

“On top of that, the Government's announcement to allow the EHA to grow the AASE programme for the foreseeable future brings in an exciting era for our National Teams.”

Registration for the event is at 9.30am, with the first match starting at 10am and going through to 2pm.
Teams from Staffordshire, Cheshire, Bedfordshire, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside will take part.
