Leicester Riders trio Anna Forsyth, Georgia Elliott-King and Robyn Lewis have all been named in the preliminary Great Britain U20 squad.

The teammates will all feature in the line up, alongside former Riders forward Harriet-Ottewill-Soulsby, that will head to camp in June in preparation for European Championships in Podgorica in July.

“I hope that they will take a lot of positive lessons away from the U20 programme.” – Coach Harber on Riders trio.

Head Coach Matthew Harber is pleased to see the trio progressing well and joining the U20s programme this summer.

“I’m really happy for Robyn, Anna and Georgia. All three of them are great people who really deserve this recognition due to their hard work this season.

“It will be a great experience for all of them and I hope that they will take a lot of positive lessons away from the U20 programme.”

Robyn Lewis will return to camp for a second year, performing well with the squad last summer. Lewis continued her time at Loughborough, backing up Great Britain Senior Georgia Jones to contribute well off the bench in the WBBL this season.

“I am very excited to have been asked back to camp this year. It is a great opportunity for me to be surrounded by such talented players and develop my game further in the summer.”

The 6’2″ forward continues to develop with the Riders whilst continuing studies at Loughborough University and is excited to be attending camp this year.

“I am delighted to be selected for my first GB U20 camp and I am really looking forward to getting on court with such a strong group of players. It will also be great to share the experience with my Riders teammates Robyn and Georgia.”
