Both International squads saw an anti-climatic end to the 2019/2020 season with the pandemic cancelling both the Bob Doherty Cup for the girls and the Centenary shield for the boys. The squads had recently got back from their international tour of Eindhoven thanks to the guys at InspireSport and were ready to go for their end of season competitive fixtures. These friendly fixtures aim to bring these talented squads back together and give them the opportunity to end their international campaigns in style. We are extremely excited to see both squads pull on their England shirts sponsored by Utilita and remind us of what they can do.
