Scott insists Brits can carry form into Euro qualifiers

7 November 2013

Water polo captain Ed Scott insists the British Gas GBR Men’s team carry their recent form into this week’s crucial third round of 2014 LEN European Championship qualifiers in Sunderland.

The Brits will face Russia, Israel and Moldova over the next three days as they aim to secure a spot in the preliminary playoff for next year’s Championships in Budapest.

We go to Sunderland with the intention of building on our performance in Malta and winning all of our games - Ed ScottBut having impressed to win four matches and lift the Malta International trophy in last week’s warm-up tournament, the British men are in red-hot form.

And Scott believes the squad – which features nine of the London 2012 Olympic team – has what it takes to continue their momentum in the North East.

"We have a big chance in Sunderland this week and we go there with the intention of building on our performances in Malta and winning all of our games,” Scott told the Press Association.

"In Malta last week we played the Netherlands with whom we have always been similar or just lost. They have a centralised coaching set-up and a better standard domestic league so to beat them by four goals shows how far we've come.

"We still have nine Olympians in the current squad so we have stuck together, we have had a change in the coaching staff and we have really bought into their new ideas.

"The distance we have come in the nine years since I first joined the squad is unbelievable. We're competing with and beating teams who in the past would have wiped the floor with us.

"We've made changes with the best intentions of improving the sport and it's working.“

The British men will play Moldova on Thursday, Israel on Friday and Russia on Saturday.

Tickets are available on the door for all three sessions – click here for more information.
