Following the training camp in January, GB men’s Head Coach Ricardo Vasconcelos has shortened his squad to 23 players for the next training camp on 5-6 March in Nottingham.

The squad will eventually be cut-down to 14 players for the IHF Emerging Nations Championship next June in Bulgaria, which will be restricted to Under-24 players, with three over-age players allowed.

Commenting on his selection Vasconcelos said "I was very pleased with the hard work and intensity of the previous session and it is always tough to reduce your squad, but we can't lost sight of the fact that we will only be able to select 14 players for the final tournament hence the necessity to reduce the number of players and become more specific in our preparation".
