GB Women Prepare for Iceland Clash

The Great Britain Women’s Handball Team are preparing to take on Iceland in London later this month in the latest of their 2010 European Championship qualification matches.

The match, at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre, is on March 31 and is Great Britain’s third group fixture following matches against Austria and former world champions France back in October.

Great Britain qualified for this stage of the competition with a thrilling victory over Finland in Liverpool last year, a match which gave many their first chance to see for themselves just how exciting handball is.

And despite losing to Austria (20-30) and France (16-42), Great Britain remain optimistic of victory over Iceland.

Following the clash against Iceland on March 31, both teams will travel to Iceland for the away leg three days later on April 3 in Reykjavik.

Having scored 11 goals over the two previous matches, Britt Goodwin looks set to be included in the squad again and will be eager to bag more goals in front of a partisan British crowd.
