GB finish fourth in European Challenge Trophy

GREAT Britain Women achieve their target of finishing in the top four of the European Challenge Trophy in Cyprus, but narrowly missed out on the bronze medal after losing 23-16 to Bosnia on Sunday.


Head coach Jesper Holmris had targeted a top four finish in the event and that is what they achieved, leaving the squad in good spirits and optimistic for the future of a young team.
Their defence was superb throughout and they scored many goals from fast break attacks, and with every member of the squad playing at the top of their game it gives Holmris and his team a positive base to work from as they plan the next stage of the GB team’s development.

With the team's focus on a very mobile and aggressive defence, the players' strength and fitness was tested to the full and proved to be outstanding throughout the gruelling
