Gary Marheineke has been named in the provisional Great Britain amputee squad for the European Championships.

Marheineke is one of two goalkeepers selected in the final 13-man party for the tournament in Turkey.

It is being staged in Istanbul from October 1 to 7.

Marheineke, who works as a skills coach for the Football Asocciation, is no stranger to the international stage after representing Great Britain in major European tournaments in the past.

He also played in the World Cup of amputee football back in 2014 when the GB side bowed out in the knockout stages in Mexico.
