Head-Coach Matt Bagley has announced the 40 men who will compete for the final 23 places in his England squad for next summers European Championships in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The forty men were chosen from the two trials held on the 4th and 11th December, in Manchester and Surrey respectively. Both were dire days in terms of weather but it seems that didn’t stop Bagley’s task of finding the talent to take forward for his squad.
