The GB Junior Lions Open Practice tour goes North and to Motherwell, Scotland on May 18th. Over the past several months the Lions have held sessions in the South of England, Midlands and will now be hosted at the Ravenscraig Sports Centre. After this key date, the 300+ players on the GB database will be cropped down to around 70 players for invitational camps held in July and Sept.
Whilst there’s no competitive game this year, the National program have been in talks with several countries and are hopefully to confirm a friendly game for the end of the year. This would set the program up well for the 2014 qualification games, and a chance to better their recent 3rd place finish at the EJC2012 qualification tournament.
Head Coach Damien Anderson said “This is a great opportunity for players in the North to be recognized at the highest level of British football, and we hope to strengthen the program with this trip”.
The practice starts at 10am and will cost £10.
