The London Roar team, which features Stirling scholars such as Duncan Scott, completed a third-place finish after the competition in Naples.

After the league’s finish, London Roar coach Steven Tigg said:

“It is mission accomplished. We certainly didn’t want to stay for an extra week.

We wanted to utilise the squad of athletes that we had at our disposal, to be fair it is a really strong and experienced squad of athletes who have a few ISLs under their belt.

Some new faces also came into the team and they did a great job. That really cemented our place in the play off, but we got it done and we are really looking forward to Eindhoven.”
