Team England build for the future at Europeans in Amsterdam
Center Parcs-supported TEAM ENGLAND have gone for a blend of youth and experience in naming their squad for the European Men’s and Women’s Team Championships in Amsterdam from February 14-19.
Nathan Robertson, who has 111 England appearances under his belt, is the most experienced member of either squad while 19-year-old Toby Penty is set to make his senior debut in Amsterdam as England’s men look to qualify for the Thomas Cup finals in Wuhan, China, from May 20-27.
Penty was a wild card entry at last year’s Yonex BWF World Badminton Championships at Wembley Arena and this will be another big opportunity for him to gain experience with Center Parcs-supported Team England.
In contrast, Robertson is set to add to his 111 England appearances, having won more caps than the rest of the men’s squad put together. Four more appearances will take him to joint sixth in the all-time England list.
Performance Director Jens Grill said today: “The objective for the men’s team is to win a medal in Amsterdam and qualify for the finals in China. The selectors have picked a 10-man squad which they believe will give England the best chance of success.”
The top three nations will qualify for the finals from this Continental round and England are seeded third behind top seeds Denmark with Germany second seeds and Russia fourth seeds.
England are in Group 3 and begin against Switzerland on February 14 (10am) followed by Slovenia on February 15 (6pm) and the Czech Republic on February 16 (6pm).
Only the group winners go through to the quarter-finals on February 17 and if England top their group they will face the winners of Group 8 which features eighth seeds Ukraine plus Iceland, Luxembourg and Finland.
· Rajiv Ouseph (Middx, Age 25) 40 caps
· Carl Baxter (Kent, Age 26) 8 caps
· Ben Beckman (Surrey, Age 24) 3 caps
· Toby Penty (Surrey, Age 19) 0 caps
· Nathan Robertson (Notts, Age 34) 111 caps
· Andrew Ellis (Yorks, Age 25) 4 caps
· Chris Adcock (Notts, Age 22) 21 caps
· Chris Langridge (Surrey, Age 26) 14 caps
· Marcus Ellis (Yorks. Age 22) 3 caps
· Peter Mills (Notts, Age 23) 0 caps
Center Parcs- supported Team England’s women’s squad will rely heavily on the two experienced doubles pairings of Jenny Wallwork and Gabby White and Mariana Agathangelou and Heather Olver.
Sarah Walker will be joined in singles by Panuga Riou and Nicola Cerfontyne, two of the four women’s squad members set to make their senior debuts.
Grill said: “The team has been picked with future potential in mind and this has been the main criteria considered in the selection. They are a talented group and it is our ambition to develop a medal-winning team for 2016”.
England’s women are the seeds in Group 6 and begin against Scotland on February 14 (2pm) before facing Italy on February 15 (10am) and Switzerland on February 16 (10am).
Denmark are the top seeds followed by Germany and the Netherlands. If England top their group they are likely to face a quarter-final against the Dutch.
· Sarah Walker (Essex, Age 22) 10 caps
· Panuga Riou (Hants, Age 19) 0 caps
· Nicola Cerfontyne (Dorset, Age 24) 0 caps
· Kate Robertshaw (Yorks, Age 21) 4 caps
· Mariana Agathangelou (Avon, Age 23) 12 caps
· Heather Olver (Sussex, Age 25) 8 caps
· Jenny Wallwork (Yorks, Age 25) 36 caps
· Gabrielle White (Yorks, Age 21) 23 caps
· Alex Langley (Notts, Age 20) 0 caps
· Lauren Smith (Yorks, Age 20) 0 caps

Or at least entered names out of which the final team can still be picked
I think a few of those with full 10 names will still make a selection, Russia for one ...

^ of course, and I'm sure that the results of the national championships for the countries that have theirs this weekend, will be key in narrowing down the players for this tournament.

Linda almost won the tie there for team Scotland, and put them 3-0 up, but lost 26-24, need to find one win in the doubles now, without Bankier

That is true. I was not very pleased with the Badminton Europe stream scheduling so I guess I lost a little interest after also not seeing it scheduled on BWIN late in the evening/night yesterday.
In any case if Scotland had taken it 3-0 they were very likely to win the group and also likly face Netherlands which for NL is a much easier task with better doubles pairs . Especially since Yao Jie is injured and cannot play ...

^^ Spain could have beat Denmark, but unfortunately for them, Beatriz lost, and therefore they lost 3-2.

Yeah not that Ireland were going to win the tie anyway, but still a really rookie error...

England (a very generous #6 seed–look at their line up ) is stunned by the Swiss 3-2 in the UC portion
