Current

In the 2008–09 season, all the team players were signed with clubs on the European continent, with the exception of Omar Sani, who played in Egypt.

A special arrangement with insolvent German Handball-Bundesliga side TUSEM Essen provided the side with a number of players after most first-team players had left the club.

To further the development of its players, it also operated the British Handball Development academy in Denmark.[10]
