This weekend SKL league champions Edinburgh Mavericks are in Slovakia competeing in the Europa Cup Qualifiers. Mavericks were undefeated in last year’s league, scoring on average over 18 goals per game, and are looking to reproduce that success on the European stage. Team coach John Wright spoke of his aspirations for the tournament:
We’re really looking forward to going up against the other teams at the Europa Cup Qualifiers. It’ll be a tough test but our training should stand us in good stead to put in some good performances.
Our preparations have mostly gone well playing warm up matches to ensure the squad are game sharp following the summer break.
It’s exciting to see how we’ve developed as a team since the last time we played in European competition. We’re hoping for improved results this time around.
