Well I should think so too. Can't believe they even considered not doing so. I've looked on the ECF website and I can't see the announcement anywhere. Where will I find it?

It's good that we are sending a team, and credit where it's due to the Director for carrying on trying and asking for the late entry to be accepted.

But the underlying arguments about proper and fair financial support remain to be accepted. No (significant) extra money has been found to make this possible, as far as I can see. There is still no travelling coach and any coaching that might be done will have to be via Skype. Nor are there really five players - two of them can only be there for some of the time, and so each is covering for the absence of the other. There might only be four players available for each match.
