Caledonia Pride congratulate former player Hannah Robb on being called up to the Great Britain squad for the upcoming EuroBasket qualifier against Poland.
The 22 year old from Arbroath earns her first call to the senior team, having captained the Great Britain U20 team at the European Championships Division B in 2018, after missing out due to injury in 2017.
Having been a key member of the Pride team during our first 4 seasons in existence, Hannah moved to Leicester Riders this summer. Having joined Pride 2016 and quickly established herself as a core member of the team in her first season, Hannah expanded her game and her role each season, eventually becoming our franchise leader in games played, points and steals, as well as being second in assists and third in rebounds.
Hannah’s time at Pride coincided with 4 seasons playing with the University of Edinburgh, before which her basketball career began with Tayside Musketeers in the Scottish Basketball Championships, meaning that until her recent move to England, Hannah’s development to the top level of the sport had taken place entirely within the Scottish system.
Speaking about Hannah’s call to the senior team, Pride head coach Bart Sengers said: “This is great news. Hannah has worked hard to get to this moment and I am sure she will do her best to enjoy it and learn from it.
“Hannah is making everyone that has contributed to the Pride program very proud. She is the first player to come through the Caledonia Pride programme and get an invitation to the GB senior camp. For me, that was only a matter of time, as I have always believed she would get that opportunity if she continued to work hard. I am really happy for her and I am confident it will inspire Hannah to continue to get better.
“It was a big decision at the time for her to come to us and I am glad that she took the opportunity and showed a path for Scottish young women. Go Hannah!”
Great Britain’s EuroBasket qualifiers take place on 8-15 November in Istanbul, Turkey.
