Uhlenhorst Mulheim out to try and defend ABN AMRO EHL U14 Boys title

The battle for the ABN AMRO EHL U14 Boys will see six of Europe’s finest Under-14 clubs in action on April 21 and 22 in Eindhoven.

HTC Uhlenhorst Mülheim go into the competition as the reigning champions and they will represent Germany once again. They were selected as their representative as the best placed U14 club from the first part of the season in October of those eligible to take part – ahead of Rot-Weiss Koln and Mannheimer HC.

They are in Pool B alongside the Waterloo Ducks and Surbiton. The Ducks were selected to represent Belgium as the highest ranked EHL club in their national competition after the first round of matches. In England, Surbiton got the best of Wimbledon in a one-off qualifier 4-2 in mid-October.

In Pool A, SV Kampong – winners on two occasions – are up against Junior FC and Saint Germain. Kampong won a three-team, one-day series in the Netherlands, beating both AH&BC Amsterdam and HC Oranje-Rood 3-0. Junior won a six-game series in Spain against Club Egara and Real Club de Barcelona over three weekends before Christmas while Saint Germain earned the French nomination.

Sunday 21 April sees the group stages play out to a conclusion with the semi-finals taking place the same day in the main EHL stadium.

Monday 22 April features the classification matches with the GRAND FINAL at 11.30h with the eventual winner presented to the crowd during half-time of the BRONZE MATCH of the EHL.

** The fixture schedule is potentially subject to change to, where possible, allow parents and players to support their club in the EHL FINAL4 on Sunday 21 April where applicable. This will be looked at again following the conclusion of the KO16. Matches on Sunday April 21 are 2x20 minutes with classification games on Monday April 22 2x25 minutes.
