Great Britain have named their roster for the Under-16s Riga Hockey Cup in Latvia in April.

GB will take part for a second successive year, with the competition taking place from 21st to 23rd April.

Sixteen junior teams from across Europe will take part in the three-day tournament.

Head Coach, Jamie Elson, said: “There were some really tough decisions in a number of positions that we deliberated over for a while and I think that shows the level of competition we had for places.

“We feel we have selected is a really rounded and balanced team with players to fit all the roles up and down the roster. It’s key to get the players that are the right fit.

“We feel this is an exciting group with lots of talent and good character also, something that was important to us as staff.

“This year’s group has lots of players who have experienced playing in this tournament in Riga before, as well as playing abroad which should help us as the level of competition is very high.

“All the staff are looking forward to working with this group and helping to develop this squad of players as they start their GB journey.”
