Vincent Named Man of the Match Against Polva Serviti

RIGHT winger Gawain Vincent was named as the player of the match as Great Britain men lost out 26-36 in their latest match of the Limburgse Handbaldagen Tournament in Holland.

Vincent, 19, scored six goals in a strong performance which puts him in the frame for a regular spot in the team’s World Championship qualification tournament in Finland next month.

As well as Vincent’s six goals, Omar Sani added seven as GB went down to Polva Serviti, who are currently second in the Estonian Handball League and who topped the group in the Limburgse event and were aiming to reach the final.

“It was a good positive performance from the lads after a disappointing day yesterday,” said assistant coach Bill Baillie.

“Most of the players rose to the challenges presented to them, and the defence was better, so it was a step up from our last performance.”

Great Britain will now play in the placement game for 7th and 8th place against Haugaland HK from Norway on Tuesday, and will then return home before playing in the Yellow Cup in Switzerland from January 2-4.
