The U20 Men’s Volleyball squad is en route to Andorra where they will be competing in a Small Countries Association (SCA) tournament.  Asides from the hosts they will face opposition from Ireland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and Northern Ireland.

The Minister for Sport, the Hon Steven Linares has praised the hard work of the Gibraltar Volleyball Association’s committee adding that: “The fact that the GVA is now in a position to send an under 20 squad to an SCA tournament is a testament to their hard work and dedication.  The fruits of their development programme are plain to see and the GVA now finds itself in a very healthy position in both the junior and senior sections.  All the best to the team for a tournament that can only bring positive learning outcomes.

“In addition, to junior volleyball players the Gibraltar Football Association Under 19s women squad is in North Macedonia where they start their campaign in their UEFA European Women’s Under 19 Championship campaign. 

“All the best also to our young female footballers as they pit their wits against tough opposition in Israel today and North Macedonia and Georgia over the course of the next week or so.  It is a source of great pride to see another group of young people representing our country in top level competition.  As always I am certain that members of the GVA and GFA will make us proud.”
