Clarke Excited by NIC GB Game

Great Britain forward David Clarke says the chance to play in front of his home crowd for the national team is always a special honour.

GB take on Poland at the National Ice Centre on Thursday 9th April 2015 and then the two sides will meet again in Coventry’s Skydome the following night.

The two games will be part of Great Britain’s preparations for the 2015 World Championship (Division 1B) in Eindhoven.

It will be the first time GB Men have played in Nottingham since facing Netherlands in 2011, when they skated to a 5-2 victory.

Clarke said: “It is always special to play for GB but it will be even more special to play at the NIC again.

“GB get great support in Nottingham, as we do in every rink we play, and I am really looking forward to playing on my home ice.

“These games are excellent preparation for the World Championship and Poland will be tough opposition.

“They were promoted to Division 1A last season but we beat them in our final game in the tournament.

“We match up well against them and they always seem to be good games.

“It’s a great way for supporters to give the guys a send off ahead of the World Championship.

“Last season’s games in Sheffield and Coventry were well attended and it really gave us a boost to see so many people turn out.”
