GB U19 demonstrate depth of talent in British Wheelchair Basketball with BIG series win over Germany

After a tough selection process, a GB U19 squad took part in a friendly international series against Germany.

Held at the birthplace of the Paralympic Games, Stoke Mandeville Stadium, the GB U19 Team combined intense training sessions with matches against their European rival.

It would be GB who would show their class, with three dominant performances. The host’s laid down an early marker with a convincing 72-20 victory, Fryer, Edwards and Dunn all hitting double figures, before putting in an equally impressive defensive display: winning 50-20 on the back of double-digit scoring from Fryer and Cusack. GB wrapped up the series with a 62-25 win to ensure a perfect record and demonstrate the strength and depth in the ranks. Cusack and Fryer once again produced double-digit individual scores.
