Great Britain Women U18 heading to Spain for international tournament

GB will come up against host nation Spain, along with Hungary and Poland, at the Igloo Granada Ice Arena from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th November.

Hungary are GB’s first opponents on the opening day, with Poland next on the Saturday. Both games face-off at 4.00pm local time.

GB round off the tournament against Spain on the Sunday (7.30pm)

Head coach Cheryl Smith said: “This will be excellent preparation for January’s World Championship.

“It will be good to see the girls in game situations and how they react to certain things.

“Some of them will have never travelled abroad for an ice hockey tournament, so it will be good for them to see how things work.

“Obviously, the World Championship is a much bigger stage but this will prepare them well for January.”
