CHANGE FOR GB U18S ROSTER

Great Britain Under-18s have made a change to their roster for the upcoming World Championship Division II Group A in Tallinn.

Lewis English, who plays for Swedish side Nynasham, replaces Lewis Houston who has had to pull out because of injury.

The six-team tournament runs from 1st to 7th April and GB will face hosts Estonia, along with Australia, Korea, Lithuania and Poland.

GB U18s interim head coach, Tony Hand, said: “It is a real shame for Lewis Houston who had only recently come into the squad because of another injury in the squad.

“But, I said before, we have a talented squad of players at under-18 level, so we are bringing another great player onto the roster in Lewis English.”

GB fly out to Tallinn next week and will play challenge games against Poland and Estonia, before getting the tournament under way on Sunday 1st April when they face Estonia in their opening World Championship game.
