England U16 squads announced for Acqua Pradis Winter Cup

The England U16 boys’ and girls’ teams, who will be competing in the Acqua Pradis Winter Cup, have been announced.

Hosted in Pordenone, Italy, the selected athletes will be flying off to the host nation the day before the start of the competition, with matches commencing on Friday 27th December and running until Sunday 29th December.

The Acqua Pradis organisers have yet to confirm the teams that England will face but you can keep up to date with the tournament via the Acqua Pradis Winter Cup website and Facebook event. Organised by the same group who run the Cornacchia World Cup, where England entered U19 squads earlier this year, the event is likely to attract club and international teams from across the world.

The competition represents a fantastic opportunity for the England U16s, particularly on the back of the recent success of the England U17 girls who made history with a silver medal at NEVZA U17s in Denmark in October.
