Cardiff Devils forward Matthew Myers says the first day of training camp was impressive as Great Britain prepare for two international matches with Poland this weekend.

GB’s 28-man squad met in Coventry on Tuesday evening and had two on-ice sessions yesterday and will be back on the ice this morning.

Both sides play in their respective World Championship tournaments later this month, with GB hosting the Division 1 Group B competition in Belfast.

Myers said: “We had two good intense training sessions and everyone looked impressive out there.

“It was great to get the GB boys back together and there is always a good spirit when we are out on the ice together.

“We battle hard all season long against each other, but the bond between us is fantastic and training already is a great place to be.

“We are looking forward to taking on Poland. They are a fantastic side and these two matches are always fun to play in.”
