Great Britain U20 have called up Scottish forward Caly Robertson to their roster for the upcoming World Championship tournament in Vilnius.
Robertson replaces Kieran Brown who has pulled out of the squad due to injury.
GB will face Lithuania, Japan, Romania, Serbia and Spain in the Division 2A group from 6-12th January at the Pramogu Arena.
Head coach, Martin Grubb, said: “Losing Kieran is a big blow and I’m sure he will be missed. We wish him a speedy recovery from his injury.
“He has made an impact at this level, so to lose him is unfortunate and a big shame for Kieran himself as well as the team.
“However, it means the door opens for another player and Caly was very unlucky not to make the original squad.
“He has World Championship experience with the under-18s, so he knows what it’s all about and what’s expected of him at this level.
“Caly is a talented player and I’m sure he will fit in very well. We will be looking for him to bring his current good form for Bracknell Bees into this tournament.”
