Matt Johnson 568Great Britain Under-20 Women coach Matt Johnson has finalised his 12-strong roster for the European Championships which start next week in Bulgaria.

It includes Harriet Ottewill-Soulsby, who spent part of this summer with the senior GB team, as well as Whitney Allen, whose elder sister Dominique was a big factor at EuroBasket Women.

Only five of the squad featured in last summer’s relegation fight which saw GB slip into Division B.

“Over the last six weeks we have experienced some incredible characters, some frustrating injuries, some extraordinary efforts and more importantly a consistent enthusiasm and energy to get better from all players that have made contributions to the GB under-20 team,” said Johnson.

“The weight of importance is most certainly carried with us as we now feel ready to go into what promises to be a very testing tournament in Bulgaria.”

Squad: Florence Ward, Megan Lewis, Rosie Hynes, Billie Lucas, Leah McDerment, Hilary Wood, Melita Emanuel-Carr, Shequila Joseph, Whitney Allen, Harriet Ottewill-Soulsby, Kaitlyn Lewis, Claire Paxton
