Handball: Eight boys make Gibraltarian handballing history against a side from San Martin del Tesorillo

The players that made history by representing Gibraltar for the first time in Handball were:-

Giles Cerisola

Sam Jeacock
Kadrian Smith
Philippe Perez

Jarvis Bautista

Stefan Gonzalez

Ashley Baglietto

Dean Penfold

The first matches played by our youngsters were held today, 8th December, in San Martin del Tesorillo.

Three games were held in total with a balance of two defeats and one draw. A very creditable performance by our lads considering that it was their first ever game and that the opposition have been playing together for two seasons. Each and every player should be c ongratulated.

Comment: As can be seen from the images the outing was a great success with regards to the building of sporting and cultural ties between the two communities as well as the playing experience of the new players.

The establishment of handball in Gibraltar is surely not an easy task, when vying for players from many of the other sports available to youngsters in Gibraltar.

The game of handball, is a truly exciting and dynamic sport that requires a high level of fitness and skill, something that our young players have already begun to develop. would like to thank David for the time spent on providing these youngsters with the opportunity to be part of such a great occassion.
