Head Coach James Vear will lead the squad, which will take on Portugal, Macedonia, Georgia, Kosovo and Luxembourg, who they will face in the opening game on Thursday August 10th.

James told gbbasketball.com, "We are happy to be able to pick our final twelve but it's also difficult as we lose players who have been with us since the start of this process."

"We have had a good preparation phase which continues this weekend in Belgium, then another camp in the UK and an acclimatisation game vs Greece in Bulgaria."

"This is an exciting age group with a lot of talent and we need to continue to work hard in the short period we have left before the European Championships."

He will be backed by Assistant Coach Craig Nicol, Performance Analyst Ieuan Alex Jones, Strength & Conditioning coach Hani Assi, Physio Mark Dayson as well as Team Manager Howard Leighton
