- National Teams
England Under-18 Head Coach Steve Bucknall has named his squad for a series of upcoming warmups for the Division B European Championships this summer. The team heads to Mons, Belgium this weekend for games against Belgium and Luxembourg and then return to England to participate in Future Stars 2011.
The roster is as follows:
Jamie Batish (Sandringham Sabres, Australia)
Jack Crook (Manchester Magic)
Simeon Esprit (Barking Abbey)
Dale Francis-O’Brien (Canarias Basketball Academy, Spain)
Joshua McGinn (Manchester Magic)
Elliott Sentance (Leicester Warriors)
David Sainsbury-Garcia (Asefa Estudiantes, Spain)
Jordan Spencer* (High School, USA)
John Stewart (City of Sheffield)
Raphell Thomas-Edwards (Leicester Warriors)
Harrison Turner* (Taunton Tigers)
Joshua Ward-Hibbert (Derby Trailblazers)
Zak Wells (Barking Abbey)
Ross Wilson (Newcastle Eagles)
*Harrison Turner and Jordan Spencer are not travelling to Belgium and will only compete in Future Stars.
Spanish based David Sainsbury-Garcia and former Milton Keynes Lions guard Jordan Spencer are both late additions to the squad who were not on the most recent team list released in March.
The team has suffered a blow as Blair Academy guard Joe Hart has recently undergone knee surgery and will be out until next season, whilst Devon Van Oostrum who is also elegible for this squad is competing with the GB U20s.
