The GB Lions women’s contact squad for the 2019 Women’s IFAF European Championship finals in Leeds has been revealed.

The tournament will take place at the South Leeds Stadium, John Charles Centre for Sport, Leeds, UK from 12-17 August 2019.

Head Coach Jim Messenger said:

“Going all the way back to Diamond Series 2018, this has been the longest and most thorough selection process we have been through with over 150 athletes trialling.

The selected team is a strong mix of veterans from previous campaigns in Canada and Spain and excellent new blood that will drive the continued success of the team for years to come.

We are very grateful to all those who have supported the GB Women’s programme over the last year and provided the chance to enter this tournament on a strong footing.”
