Bobby White: The season is coming to an end

Bobby White is another new recruit to mysportsthoughts as he keeps us up to date in his long quest to make it to London 2012.

The 25-year-old goalkeeper is part of the British Handball Association’s World Class Development squad based in Denmark as they look to overcome the recent blow of a cut to their funding.

As well as training with England, the Northampton born star, plays in the Danish league with BMI, he will be providing us with regular blogs from his base in Arhus.

The Danish Handball season is coming to an end and after an impressive first competitive season, I am looking forward to a couple of weeks off and then getting back into pre-season training.

The season has had it’s highlights and low points. At our Danish base camp, Idraetshojskon, Arhus just 6 of the 12 athletes that started the year remain due to the financial difficulties the programme has experienced. Other opportunities were presented for the more experienced members of the squad as they joined Bundesliga outfit TUSEM Essen in the German top flight.

For the remaining 6 it has been a difficult period as our daily academy sessions have suffered due to lack of numbers however stand in coach Jesper Holmris (GB Womens Head Coach) has made the most of the situation and has kept us motivated with competitive and enjoyable training despite the lack of players!

In two weeks the season will be over and I will be leaving Denmark for home to begin what I hope to be an intense physical training period to get myself into the best possible condition for the summer training camps.

A new coach is set to be in place in a couple of weeks and it is up to us to impress in our first camp at the end of April so everyone will need to be in peak condition.

After the pre-season training, there is still a question mark as to where the majority of the squad will be with offers coming in from all over Europe, I am hoping one will arrive which will allow us to continue our exponential development while also being financially viable for the players.
