Seven of Great Britain Women’s players were awarded their GB cap this evening at a special presentation outside the arena in Maribor.

Last season’s roster in Korea were all awarded a cap in Gangneung and 15 of those players are on the roster for this year’s World Championship Division II Group A in Slovenia.

Six players, who had previously played for GB, returned to the squad this season and were handed their cap in order of them representing GB.

Holly Cornford (90), Katherine Gale (91), Sophie Herbert (92), Samantha Bolwell (97), Beth Scoon (104) and Jodie Bloom (105), were joined by debutant cap Abigail Culshaw who became the 128th player to represent GB.

Ice Hockey UK would like to thank Mowbray Sports for supplying the caps.
