GB announce U18 squad

Great Britain U18 Head Coach Martin Grubb has named his squad for April’s World Championship tournament in Brasov.

The GB youngsters will face hosts Romania, along with Croatia, Lithuania, Netherlands and Poland. The Division 2A tournament runs from 4th to 10th April 2016.

Grubb said: “I’m very happy with the team we have picked and I feel we have a good mix of youth and experience.

“We have retained a strong defensive core from last season and that should help us as we head into the tournament.

“There were some very tough decisions and some good players left out the final team, but that means we have a good squad at our disposal.

“We know we still have lots of prep to do, but can now look forward to our February camp. We will step up the preparation and everyone in the group is excited.”
