Five Bears named in England U18 squad for February camp

first_imgCharlie Rice, George Taylor, Andrew Turner, Deago Bailey and Tom Wilstead (pictured left to right, above) were all named in head coach Jonathan Pendlebury’s squad for the four-day camp, which ran from February 20th-23rd.England U18s will play two standalone fixtures against Scotland at Hawick RFC (Sunday, March 15th, 2pm KO) and France in Bourges (Sunday, March 22nd, 4pm KO local time), before April’s U18 Six Nations Festival in France.The U18 Six Nations Festival is competed by England, France, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Italy with each nation playing three fixtures over two weeks.The squad are led by new head coach Jonathan Pendlebury, who is assisted by Darlington Mowden Park coach Mark Luffman (forwards) and Harlequins academy coach Mark Mapletoft (backs) for the season.Former England international Mapletoft has previous experience of coaching in the player pathway having been England U20s coach and also held a senior role at Harlequins until 2019. Luffman has coached in the pathway since 2014 – and continues his role with England U18s.Players have been selected by pathway staff based on their performances in the U18 academy league, as well as school competitions and also in consultation with academy managers from the 14 regional academies. The camp will also allow coaches to discuss playing principles and themes with the squad ahead of the two standalone fixtures, as well as the U18 Six Nations Festival. Players will be encouraged to explore the boundaries of their game during training.In addition, six players will be invited into camp as part of the wider squad as a way to support their future development.Jonathan Pendlebury said: “My first priority is to get to know these players as well as I can. The players are the pathway.”As a pathway management team we want to support the players in their development towards being full time senior academy players and future internationals as well as help them fulfil their potential as senior players in the game.”The sessions will be a step up from the last 10 weeks of U18 academy league fixtures that they have participated in. I expect the players to ‘explore boundaries’ which could be a way of playing or executing a skill or tactic and look to learn something from each session and particularly each game that may support their progression in the game.”We will explore different themes in attack, defence and transition and how we execute or look to utilise these will be a main theme for the U18 group going forwards.”last_img read more

Only a win will do for APOEL in Amsterdam

first_imgBy Andreas VouAPOEL travel to Amsterdam to take on Dutch champions Ajax on Wednesday (9.45pm) knowing that only a win will do in order to remain in European competition beyond the new year. Giorgos Donis’ side are bottom of Champions League Group F, one point behind their Dutch counterparts. A win for APOEL will see them leapfrog their opponents into third place which will hand them progression to the knockout phase of the Europa League.Despite their valiant performances, APOEL have amassed just one point so far in the competition and have lost three games in a row without scoring a goal since their only draw this campaign – that point came against Ajax in Nicosia, where the two sides played out a 1-1 draw.Gustavo Manduca’s penalty, APOEL’s only goal so far in the competition this season, leveled the game just four minutes after Lucas Andersen had put the visitors ahead.Two defeats against Paris Saint-Germain as well as a heavy 4-0 home loss at the hands of Barcelona have left APOEL with the tough task of defeating Ajax on their own patch – the Cypriots have never won a Champions League match away from home.Club captain Constantinos Charalambidis continues his road to recovery while Argentine midfielder Tomas De Vincenti is undergoing individual physiotherapy and gym exercises but both will not make the squad for Wednesday’s game. John Arne Riise will also remain in Cyprus after coming down with symptoms of gastroenteritis.Brazilian centre-back Carlao has been one of APOEL’s top performers in this year’s competition and his return to training is a major boost for the Cypriots, especially as his defensive partner Guilherme misses out through suspension following his red card against Barcelona.Ajax will be without Kolbeinn Sigthórsson after the Icelandic international suffered an ankle injury in his side’s 5-0 drubbing of Willem II over the weekend. The striker managed to bag Ajax’s opening goal on 14 minutes but was forced off just five minutes later.Ajax will qualify for the knockout stage of the Europa League as long as they avoid defeat but Dutch legend Johan Cruyff has warned his former club that playing for a draw could bring negative consequences.“Against APOEL, there could be unfortunate surprises. It is true that, for Ajax, a point is enough but if they play for a draw they may have a problem.“Therefore I suggest they play attacking and intelligently. APOEL defend very well and the best way of approaching them is to be clinical,” Cruyff concluded, speaking to De Telegraaf. APOEL go into their do-or-die match in high spirits following a 0-1 away win against Anorthosis which, coupled with Apollon’s 3-1 defeat against AEK Larnaca, gives them a five-point lead at the top of the Cyprus standings.The scorer of that vital goal was Rafik Djebbour who expressed his delight via his personal Twitter account and also stated his intention for the upcoming European match.“Victory time for APOEL. I’m so glad for giving a goal to my team. Let’s win again against Ajax! Go APOEL.”last_img read more
