GB U20 face big test

Great Britain U20 Head Coach Tom Watkins says tonight’s match with MK Lightning is a ‘big test’ for his young players.

The GB youngsters take on the high-flying EPL side at the Milton Keynes Arena (7:45pm) as preparation for the upcoming World Championship.

GB head to Megeve in France later this month for the Division 1B tournament, following promotion from 2A last season.

Watkins said: “I am looking forward to this game and seeing how the squad play. MK are a quality EPL side and will pose a lot of threat and it will be a big test for the roster.

“The World Championship is just around the corner now and this will be a massive help in our preparations. Getting the squad together so close to a tournament is a massive bonus for us.”

GB will take on hosts France in Megeve, as well as Japan, Poland, Slovenia and Ukraine from 12-18 December 2015.
