john  GB Student Squad Manager – John Bagnall (Edinburgh City)
I have played Korfball for around 6 years now having started playing as an undergraduate at Oxford University. I moved to Edinburgh University before finally joining my current club, Edinburgh City. I have had the privilege of representing my club at two Europa Cups as well as having played for the Scottish National Team in times gone by. I first joined the BSKA Exec last year as National Competitions Manager but have now moved roles to become the GB Squad Manager. Working together with the GB coaches, I will oversee the administration side of the student team including the organisation of trials. This year we hope to put together a bigger squad with the goal of aiding development of student korfball as well as showcasing its strength on both a national and international stage.
