GB U18 Women To Travel To Poland

Great Britain Under-18 Women will travel to Poland in January 2015 for their World Championship Division 1 qualification tournament.

No applicant came forward at Congress earlier this year, but Poland have now stepped forward and this was approved at this week’s Semi-Annual Congress.

GB will face hosts Poland, along with China, Denmark, Kazakhstan and Italy from the 19th to 25th January 2015.

The venue for the tournament is still to be decided.

Ice Hockey UK general secretary, Andy French, said: “It is great news that this has been sorted.

“Our women’s program is going from strength to strength and the Under-18s are a vital part of that.

“They had a great experience playing against some top nations last season in Division One.

“Now their aim is to reach that level again.”
