Eight GB players to go head-to-head as BSR Amiab Albacete host Mideba Extremadura in Spain

There will be a very British feel when BSR Amiab Albacete host Mideba Extramedura in Spain on Saturday with eight GB players lining-up for the two clubs this season. 

Harry Brown, Gaz Choudhry, Ben Fox, Lee Manning and Kyle Marsh will be in action for the hosts, while George Bates, Billy Bridge and Phil Pratt will travel to Albacete to represent Mideba in what will no doubt be a very competitive clash in Spain’s Division de Honor. Tip-off on Saturday is at 6pm (UK Time). 

The only other game in Spain this weekend will see James MacSorley’s BSR ACE Gran Canaria take on Fundacion FDI Las Rozas at 6pm. 

In Germany, Helen Freeman will be hoping she can help RSB Thuringia Bulls return to winning ways after their first defeat of the season came against RSV Lahn-Dill last weekend. A home game against BG Baskets Hamburg is what awaits them this weekend (Saturday, 5pm). 

In Italy, Martin Edwards will be back in action after playing his first competitive game in over a year last weekend. Despite top-scoring with 23 points last weekend, he was unable to prevent Special Bergamo Sport Montello being defeated 48:59 by Deco Group Amicacci Giulianova in the first leg of the Group B Quarter-Final in this season’s new format for Serie A. 

The two teams will meet again on Saturday at 4pm for the return leg with Edwards and Bergamo looking to overturn their first leg deficit. 

Here’s the full list of fixtures featuring GB athletes this weekend (all listed as UK times):
