Terry Bywater to face five GB players as CD Ilunion take on Mideba in Spain

There will be lots of British interest when CD Ilunion travel to Mideba Extremadura in the Spanish League this weekend with Terry Bywater facing five of his GB teammates as British players continue their club seasons across Europe.

After their first defeat of the season last weekend, Terry Bywater’s CD Ilunion will be eager to return to winning ways when they play Mideba; featuring GB’s George Bates, Gregg Warburton, Phil Pratt, Abdi Jama and Ben Fox.

The British five will be hoping their side can deny Ilunion a win just as Sam Mack and Lewis Edwards did last weekend when their Iberconsa Amfiv side ended the league leaders’ unbeaten season.

Mack and Edwards will be back in action on Saturday in a game which will feature six British players with Gaz Choudhry, Lee Manning, Harry Brown and Kyle Marsh lining-up against Mack and Edwards for BSR Amiab Albacete.

Albacete are level on points with CD Ilunion and have won their last three games since losing to Ilunion in December; their only defeat of the season so far.

Thomas Smith’s Rincon Dental Amivel host Fundacion Vital Zuzenak.

In Germany, Simon Brown and Jim Palmer will play their penultimate games of the regular season, with both of their sides in play-off contention.

Brown’s RSV Lahn-Dill have already guaranteed their place in the play-offs, with RSV Lahn-Dill currently second in the table, two points behind league leaders RSB Thuringia Bulls. Brown’s side will be looking to secure their eighth successive victory when they take on Roller Bulls Ostbelgien.

Palmer’s Rhine River Rhinos Wiesbaden are currently fifth and host third-placed Hannover United on Saturday.

In Italy, Martin Edwards and Ian Sagar will both be in action as the Italian League heads into the second-half of their season.

Edwards’ SSD Santa Lucia travel to the east coast of Italy to take on Amicacci Giulianova, while Sagar’s Special Bergamo Sport host bottom of the table Dinamo Lab Banco di Sardegna.
