Recruiting sessions planned for GB Under-18 Men’s Team

Tue 23 Apr 2019

The GB Under-18 Men’s Team will be competing in a European Qualifier in September for the 2020 WBSC Under-18 Men’s World Championship, and Head Coach Ian Tomlin is looking to add players to the squad.

The team formerly played at Under-19 level, but the World Baseball Softball Confederation has recently changed age groups in softball, taking a year off the Under-19, Under-16 and Under-13 age groups.

The GB Under-18 Men’s Team is looking for players born between 2001 and 2004 and is offering an opportunity for individuals to attend the Great Britain Fastpitch League (GBFL) to train, trial and play with the squad.  The trials will consist of a range of skill tests as well as playing in GBFL games.

Ideally, players will have had some softball or baseball experience and be capable of taking part in a competitive softball game.


Training and trials for potential new GB Under-18 Men’s Team players will be held on four Saturdays at Farnham Park near Slough:

4 May
11 May
25 May
1 June

Booking is necessary to ensure that players get a good opportunity to play with the squad -- to book for a trial please contact Team Manager Jill Russell.  

Successful applicants will be invited to join the squad and attend planned events leading up to the European Qualifier.
