Great Britain U21s Head to Poland

GREAT Britain Under-21s head to Poland next week for the latest in a busy summer of action for the young squad.

Several triallists look set to attend the five-day camp, which will include a four-team tournament against senior clubs from the second tier of Poland’s league system.

After impressing at the Partille Cup, Savehof playmaker David Kaeling will attend, as will England under-18 playmaker James Higgins. And a goalkeeper from Germany may also attend for coach Bill Baillie to run the rule over.

“I think we’ve got the 18-man squad we want to work with now,” said Baillie, pictured. “The Partille Cup in Sweden was good experience, and we used the Cell Cup in Hungary to give some of the UK-based players chance to show what they can do, because we had our five top players out for that event.

“Players like Jack Hennessey and Josh Hampson really stepped up and proved their potential, but there’s room for others to do the same in Poland.”
