Men's Premier Handball League: Cambridge face Leaders GD

Cambridge make the trip to Men’s Premier Handball League leaders London GD this weekend looking to end a three-match losing run.

Olympia host Warrington Wolves, NEM Hawks take on West London Eagles, and Nottingham play Carshalton Titans.

Cambridge opened their campaign with a victory over West London Eagles. However, since that win, they have not taken maximum points and have dropped to sixth in the table. They face a GD side that has won their last two matches, their only defeat when one goal separated them and Nottingham in week two. Throw-off at Leyton Score Centre is 14.30 on Sunday. It is preceded by the Women’s Premier League match between the two sides at 12.30 in a great double header.

Olympia have drawn their last two matches, and sit in third behind Nottingham and GD on goal difference. They face a Wolves side with just one win to their name so far this season, a return that sees them in seventh, goal difference separating the north-west side and Cambridge. Throw-off at Barking Sporthouse is at 15.00 on Saturday.

Hawks go into the match against Eagles fresh from a north-west derby win over Wolves – and are unbeaten in their last three games. They lie in fourth place, just a point behind Nottingham and Olympia. Eagles prop up the table, still searching for their first win of the season. They will, however, take confidence from holding Olympia to a draw in their last match. Throw-off is at 15.30 on Saturday. Before that match Hawks and Eagles meet in the Women’s Premier Handball League at 13.30 in another great double bill.

Second-place Nottingham play Titans at Sutton Bonington Sports Centre on Sunday. Nottingham lost their season’s opener, but have since been in great form with three wins. Promoted Titans have impressed in their first season in the top flight with two victories in their first four matches. Throw-off is at 12.30.

Get down to a Premier Handball League match and watch the most exciting, action-packed, high-scoring team sport.
