Louie Tucker earns England Under-15 call-up

Bristol Flyers Under-16 and Bristol Met star Louie Tucker has been named in Chris Bourne’s final 12-man England Under-15s squad.

After working with a tremendously strong group of 34 players at the England Talent Programme, Bourne has made his final decision ahead of their Lions Cup campaign in France, where they will compete against some of Europe’s very best, including Nanterre, CB l’Hospitalet, KK Spars Sarajevo and National Team select squads from Poland and Lithuania.

“I want to congratulate all the players selected to our Under-15 sides, it is a fantastic accomplishment and representative of their efforts over a significant period of time, including this week’s ETP camp,” said Basketball England’s Talent Programme and Pathway Manager Charlie Ford.

“The selection policy to the England teams is by no means a closed door process. Picking our squads is always difficult, but the pool of players in consideration for England selection from the ETP continues to be a wide one. If players work hard and develop their game, there will always be opportunities in the future.”
