Three Scots, Chris White (Livingston Handball), Craig McClelland (Andebol Vitoria Futebol Clube) and Craig Yule (Academico de Visue andebol) recently return from International Duty with the Senior Men's GB Handball Team.
Great Britain played three matches across 5th and 7th of November in Finland as part of their qualification bid for the 2023 IHF Men’s World Championship. Despite defeats across the board for Ricardo Vasconcelos’ side, the team gave their opponents a fair fight across all of their matches. The final match against hosts, Finland, was the third in 72 hours for GB and the tournament was the first competitive action for any GB team for over two years.
07.11.21 - Great Britain vs Finland 22:38 (10:16)
06.11.21 - Estonia vs Great Britain 34:22 (20:10)
05.11.21 Georgia vs Great Britain 32:26 (17:9)
These matches were also a landmark achievement for Craig Yule who undertook his senior debut for the GB side.
