Josie Lamey has been named as assistant coach of Great Britain Under-16s Women.

The 42-year-old, who represented GB and England as a player, iced over 375 times for Guildford Lightning.

In 2019, she began coaching with The England National Team Programme (ENTP).

“The female game has changed so much for the better since I first started playing,” said Lamey.

“There are so many opportunities for girls today. It’s exciting to be a part of it and see the talent we have coming through.

“I really find it inspiring to spend time with these young players and take pride that I have the privilege to be able influence their development both on and off the ice.” 

IHUK National Development Head Coach, Tony Hand, said: “The vacancy arose after Monica Petrosino had to stand down because of work commitments and I’d like to thank her for her work with the GB programme.

“Josie is perfect for this role. She had a fantastic career domestically in the UK and played for the national team.

“She also has vital coaching experience with the England National Team Programme and I look forward to her working with the GB programme.”
