Talent: U18 Men head to camp as Future Stars event is postponed

England's U18 Men will attend a camp at the University of East London from Friday to step up their summer return to action.

The three-day get-together has been arranged following the postponement until December of the Future Stars tournament, which the squad had been due to attend.

Following on from recent camps for the U16s and U18 women in Manchester, the U18 men will head South to UEL Sportsdock with 27 players set to suit up from Friday 27 to Sunday 29 August.

Head coach Troy Culley said:

"Whilst disappointing that the Future Stars tournament has been postponed, we feel confident the schedule we have worked to put together in its place will serve as a positive step in our return to national team activity."

Across the three days of camp, players will work on court in both the morning and afternoon as the BE talent programme continues to step up following the COVID-19 pandemic.

Four practice sessions are scheduled across the three days, with a number of scrimmages also planned to put the players through their paces ahead of the upcoming season.

Teams from Barking Abbey and London Thunder are due in camp on the final day to provide competitive opposition for the players.
