Tomorrow England face Netherlands at the Mountbatten Leisure Centre in Portsmouth in a crucial 2013 Joola European Championships Qualifier.

England’s Olympians Paul Drinkhall and Liam Pitchford, already heading to the South Coast, will now be joined by Andrew Baggaley who becomes the fourth squad member in Portsmouth.

All three Team GB Olympians will now be on duty against the Dutch in a must-win fixture for the hosts after defeat to Romania last time out.

Joining them will be National Doubles Champion Danny Reed who is also currently juggling academic studies with professional play by attending University in England while playing for his Swedish side Falkenberg.

The Dutch are lower ranked than the English trio with Casper Ter Luun (567), Rajko Gommers (647), Ewout Oostwouder (755) and Koen Hageraats (801) all travelling to in hope of a miracle in Hampshire.

The match starts at 7pm with doors opening at 6pm. You can still get tickets on the door at the Mountbatten Leisure Centre or over the phone on 02392 626509
