Great Britain Under-16s have named their team for an international ice hockey tournament in Latvia this year.

The 22-player roster will take part in the Riga Hockey Cup which is scheduled to run from 22nd to 24th April.

Teams from across Europe will take part in the competition with full details to be announced shortly.

Head Coach, Jamie Elson, said: “The process of selecting the team started last June in Sheffield and in that time there have been some very tough decisions for us as a coaching team, which is a great place to be.

“This 2006 year group is a very deep and exciting group, plus we were impressed by the 2007 players that we had join us through the process who really increased the competition for places.

“There is a buzz around this group and we really feel we have a bit of everything. There was very strong competition for goaltending which gave us a strong base.

“We have a D core who are all very mobile and confident on the puck, who we feel will really allow us to play the right way.

“In our forward pool, we have some really exciting offensive talents but I also feel we have players who will be hard-working and help us at both ends of the ice.

“Most importantly, we really liked the character and attitude amongst these players. We really wanted a group who will be playing for the shirt and know that they need to come and battle, giving everything they have.”
