U16 Men Announce Roster For European Championships

England's Under 16 Men have announced their final selections for the Division B European Championships that are to be held in Sofia, Bulgaria on the 11th – 20th August.

After confident performances against France and Scotland (winning 3-0 & 2-0 in each respective series) in their preparation for the European Championships, Coach Keane, has had the difficult but necessary task of narrowing down the squad to the final 12 that will go on to represent England.

Jacob Round and Daniel Ogoro return to the squad after representing England last year who finished 14th in the Division A championships held in Lithuania. Kareem Queeley also returns to the squad after his first year at Real Madrid.
