Superb Euro Success for Triumphant England Champions

England’s handball players claimed the biggest prize of their lives last night, when they won the European 1-Wall Championship in the 2010 Europilota Championships, which took place in Valencia, Spain 11-13th September.

After emphatic wins against Belgium and Italy in the group stages, they then secured an equally emphatic win against the Netherlands in the semi-final. The result was that, in the final, they faced the host nation, Spain, who had also won through without dropping a single game.

The final itself was broadcast live on Spanish TV and played in front of a crowd of 600 baying spectators – of whom only 10 were baying for England – and with countless friends around the world watching online. Nevertheless, England (represented by the RFA’s Ady Lee and Dan Grant alongside the EFA’s Peter Cohen) staged a remarkable comeback from two match points down and went on to claim the title.
