The line-up for the ABN AMRO EHL U14 is taking shape with all the places confirmed for the boys and girls competition at Easter 2020.
Each country ranked in the top six places on EHL ranking list was allowed to nominate their representative by a means of their choosing. For the first time, countries were allowed to open up entry to clubs whose adult team is not taking part in the current season of the EHL.
For the EHL U14 Boys, SV Kampong won a three-team playoff against HC Bloemendaal and HGC to become the Dutch representatives.
They are joined in the competition by Harvestehuder THC who got the German ticket by virtue of winning their Under-14 competition at the end of October.
Belgium’s place was decided by who finished top of their Under-14 competition after the first round in November, meaning Royal Leopold will line out in Amsterdam.
England and France will be represented by their national champion from last season with Surbiton and Lille MHC, respectively, taking up their spots.
The Spanish entry will align with their adult representative with Club Egara taking up the boys spot.
For EHL U14 Girls, HC ‘s-Hertogenbosch won the Dutch play-off game against AH&BC Amsterdam.
Germany’s HTC Uhlenhorst Mülheim were nominated due to their success at their finals at the end of October.
Surbiton complete a full-house for the club as the English girls, joining their boys side as well as their adult men and women, making for a serious party for the London club.
From Ireland, Dromore won a four-team playoff between the winners of last year’s regional champions, succeeding in a competition that featured Munster’s Catholic Institute, Leinster’s Corinthian and Connacht’s Greenfields.
HC Minsk will travel with their adult women’s team as the Belarus representative. Like the boys, the Spanish side involved will match up with the senior club and so Club de Campo will be their entry.
