Story

Have you heard of handball? It's an Olympic Sport in which Great Britain actually took part in at the 2012 London Games. Handball is the most exciting, high scoring, action packed team sport that can be played anywhere by anyone. It is infectious! 15 milion people play handball worldwide.

As a group of parents we have set up this page to ask for your help. All our son's are training hard to become members of the Under 18' Great Britain Handball Team. All the lads are self-funded (i.e. parents pay for everything) we have and will continue to do our best to support them get to the level that they are now at playing for Great Britain. It's just now we need a little help, as our personal funds are running dry. The lads need support financially to get to and from Austria and also pay the fee to take part in the European Handball Men's Championships being held in Austria this year. Handball is a madly popular sport in Europe and as group of parents and young people who love the sport, we want to make it that big in the U.K. Taking part in International Competitions like this not only develops our young players, but is also a visual platform for other countries to see the talent our boys have and how great our GB players are. If you can, please help us make this possible every £ helps so please don't leave this page thinking you have to give £'s £'s£'s £'s we are grateful for any help at all - every penny counts!. Thank you for reading and thank you for supporting if you are able to. Our sons are benefitting from the excellent coaching of London 2012 Olympian , Ciaran Williams and we have high hopes for their future development. Thank you for your support.

    Despite being injured, both Jarred Cartlidge and Miguel Vega-Harwood have shown great team spirit and continued to be important members of the squad in Austria, gathering match statistics and supporting their teammates. GB will next play Kosovo today, (Saturday) at 11 am (UK time) in the play-off round for places 9-12. Depending on that result they will either play Bulgaria or Ireland in their final placement match tomorrow. (Courtesy of British Handball)

    GB recorded their first win at the EHF M18 Championship on Thursday when they beat Ireland 25-13. GB opened a quick 2-0 lead, but then missed a succession of easy chances to increase the gap, allowing Ireland to hit back to 2-2.In a half littered with mistakes on both sides... GB were more focused in the second half ...and pressed home their advantage to win 25-13 and finish 5th in the group, ahead of Ireland. (Courtesy of British Handball Ass)
