Sat Update #2: England (and France) through to both finals

Through to the final after beating Spain, solid performance by the team who overpowered Spain tonight.

Great humoured match by both teams, we even had Robbie Keefe and Patrick Rooney scoring in Spanish to the amusement of the Spanish Team, all good fun.

England v France again this year after France had a tough battle with the host Nation Finland, with France winning an extremely tough match 2-1.

Hopefully no fire alarms going off at the hotel tonight as we have an early practice and match!

Good night and come on England :)

It's been a successful evening for team England here in Finland with the Under 15 & 17 teams both succeeding in reaching tomorrows final.

The Under 17 team consisted of Richie Fallows, Lyell Fuller & Ellie Lake.

The Finnish players looked as though they were feeling the effects of a tough encounter against Wales in their quarterfinal matchup earlier in the day.

England received a bye into the semi final, as the Tournaments number 1 seeds & group 1 winners which gave us an advantage.

All of the players produced strong performances to help England to a 3/0 victory.

Next up is France in the final tomorrow at 11:30am local time; which everyone is really looking forward to.

Sat: England Day Three Update#1:

England U15's through to the semi finals with a 3-0 over Switzerland.

James and Patrick secured the win with two excellent performances, both winning 3-0. With the match already over, both teams played their reserve players as Kace Bartley won 3-0 against Celine Walser who put up an excellent fight in the second.

Thank you to the Swiss for the mega Toblerone chocolate bar which Lee and I have commandeered, no doubt our players will be fighting us for it later!!!!

Semi v Spain tonight at 7pm. Spain are having a very successful event so far by reaching the semi finals as they were seeded 14th. Excellent to see another European Nation developing so well making the event very interesting.

Euro Juniors assemble in Espoo

It's Euro Junior time again, this time the U15 and U17 versions, where teams from all over Europe assemble in Espoo, Finland, for their respective team championships.

England are top seeds, and France second, in both events, which see the pool stages take place on Thursday and Friday, followed by the knockout stages, starting with quarterfinals, at the weekend.

Fri, Day Two, Update Three:

Another day down and all the pool matches are over. The England U15 Team topped their table today after beating Denmark 3-0.

Capitano James Peach set the proceedings off with a 3-0 win followed by Kace Bartley who also won 3-0 after being 6-1 down in the second.

Robbie Keefe was made to work hard against Rasmus Gyde coming through 3-1.

Players off for a quick dip in the pool and then bed, U15's finally have a sleep in tomorrow morning :-) which means I do too!

Switzerland tomorrow at 2pm.

Day Two, Update Two from England:

Not sunny here in Finland anymore, it's more like England with rainy drizzle.

The Under 17 team of Lyell Fuller, George Parker & Alicia Mead tiptoed our way passed a very determined and impressive Spanish team this morning.

The Spaniards came to within an inch of an upset with the final game of the final match being watched by an excited and anticipating full house.

It was Parker, however, who managed to prevail 3/2, by remaining calm and playing some precise clinical squash in the last two games to overturn a 2-1 deficit.

We now have a long wait until our next match, which is scheduled for 19:00hrs tomorrow (local time) and to see whom our next opponent is as we have a bye into the semi final of the competition.

The quarter final matches will take place tomorrow morning at 11:30 so we will find out then whom we play.

England Update, Day Two:

The U15 team beat Belgium this morning 3-0. The boys overpowered the young Belgians who put up an excellent performance and fought for every rally.

The girls match between Amelia Henley and Tinne Gillis was going to be the big battle. Tinne is ranked No 1 in Europe and is an exciting prospect for Belgium as she is following in the footsteps of her older sister Nele, who is ranked No 2 in the U17 rankings.

Amelia hit her lines and volleys extremely well and was consistently finding her spaces keeping Tinne on the wrong end of most rallies. Tinne battled hard to try and stay in the match but Ameila retrieved and kept up the pressure looking the more dominant player throughout the match, a well deserved result and a very happy coach and team.

Denmark tonight in our last pool match.

England Update #3:

First day down and two wins for the England U15 Team :)

This evening the team won comfortably 3-0 against Sweden with team captain James Peach leading the way in his first match of the event.

Robbie Keefe had his second win of the day with Kace Bartley winning her first match of the event to take the match for England.

Now back to the hotel for a sauna and swim for the players :) and a good nights sleep ready for a 9.30am match tomorrow morning.

England Update #2:

A quick update from sunny Finland.

This is the 1st time Finland has hosted the European junior Team Championships and if proceedings so far are anything to go by, then the competition will prove to be a very successful & enjoyable one for all involved.

The Under 17 England team managed to follow in the footsteps of the Under 15 team this morning to record a 3/0 team victory against Scotland.

Today's team was Richie Fallows, George Parker & Ellie Lake with team captain Lyell Fuller & Alicia Mead supporting and waiting in the wings to take their opening bow in the event tomorrow.

This evening all the players will be supporting the Under 15 team versus Sweden before preparing for an early match against Spain at 9:30am Friday morning.

Will keep you posted from the England camp,
