Sheffield forward Charlotte Edgar will replace Audrey Wood in the GB Under-18 Women’s squad for the IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship Division 1 Group B in Katowice.

The six-team tournament begins a week on Saturday (6th January) and runs until Friday 12th January 2018.

GB will come up against hosts Poland, along with Australia, China, Denmark and France.

Head coach, Cheryl Smith, said: “It is a shame that Audrey has had to pull out of the camp and she will undoubtably be missed.

“But, as I said before, we have an exciting depth of young talent in the GB Women’s programme.

“Charlotte is a great replacement and she, like many others, was unlucky to miss out on selection in the first place.”
