FINAL GAME – small pre match v GB

Our final game – lost the final game to our other GB representatives, well beaten, we had a few injuries, enjoyed the whole experience, it was an honour to represent GB. Fantastic trip but humbling at the same time, we came up against some very stiff opposition, the best each country had to offer, we lost to the eventual gold winners and bronze medalist on the way, at least we know where we need to be come the next Euros in 2024 in Italy and the work that has to be done to compete better next time.
Score: L69:46
