Brits to face Israel in final European qualifier

12th October 2011

The British Gas GBR Women’s Water Polo team will bring their Euro 2012 qualification campaign to a close with their final match in Netanya, Israel on Saturday.

The Brits have already booked their place at January’s Championships in Eindhoven – sealing qualification for the first time in 15 years with a 21-8 defeat of Ukraine in Manchester last month.

And they will look to finish their campaign on a high against an Israel team who have lost all five of their matches in Group B and fell to a 26-1 defeat against the Brits in Loughborough in January.

British head coach Szilveszter Fekete is using the dead rubber as an opportunity to hand a number of youngsters a chance in the first team, with City of Manchester players Jade Smith (18) and Claire Nixon (17) included in senior European squads for the first time.

Vicki Hawkins returns to the squad for the first time after a shoulder operation this summer while Angie Winstanley-Smith will continue to captain the side in the absence of Fran Leighton.
