GB Men win Gold at the 2023 IWBF European Championships

GB Men have won Gold at the 2023 IWBF European Championships, having won every game played at the competition. They secured the result in a heated game against Spain, ending 74:53.

Gregg Warburton was named in the All-star Five – an amazing moment for GB Men to have a representative named.

Martin Edwards thanked the GB supporters following the game:
“It’s absolutely unbelievable. I’d just like to thank everyone back home and everyone that made the trip out, for the support. They helped us get the gold.

“Onwards and upwards; we keep kicking on and Paris, here we come!”
