British Athletics U20 team leader team leader Trevor Painter said: ‘The team that we have selected for the Loughborough International match is one that we believe has the potential to score some good performances across the board for the British team.
‘We see the match as a perfect stepping stone towards the European U20 Championships in Borås later this year and it offers a fantastic chance for some of the best rising stars in British athletics to test themselves against some of the best domestic athletes in the United Kingdom.’
