Keeper White Signs for Greek League Club

GB goalkeeper Bobby White is now playing in the top Greek Handball League after being offered a deal to play for Kydon.

White, 27 and from Milton Keynes, is based in Chania on Crete but will regularly travel to the mainland for away matches in the Greek League.

“I was originally planning on going back to Denmark,” said White, who has also played professionally in Austria and Denmark. “But the last minute offer from Kydon Handball Club was very interesting for me.

“The lure to play in the top Greek League and of getting plenty of court time was too much to turn down as, right now, match experience at a good level is what I need.

“So far the training has been going well, primarily pre-season fitness but we have started handball now and the squad is looking strong and this season the club are hoping for a top five finish.

“I am gradually getting back into form, I had a little break after our European Qualification matches in June and I am really looking forward to getting back into action when our season kicks off on September 18th.”

White’s move to play in the Greek League marks the latest move in a remarkable rise through the ranks for a man who only started playing handball three years ago.

He begun playing handball after applying through the Talent ID programme to be part of the Great Britain squad and transferring from semi-professional football for Newport Pagnell and Ardley United.
