Great Britain Women confirm squad for Olympic Qualifiers

Great Britain Women have named their roster for October’s Olympic Qualifiers in Korea.

There are five new faces in the GB squad with first call-ups for Ella Howard, Ellie Wakeling, Charlotte Harris, Chamonix Jackson and Isabell Whiteley.

The Olympic Pre-Qualification Round 2 takes place in Gangneung from 7-10th October, with GB facing Iceland, Slovenia and Korea.

The group winners will qualify for the Final Qualification tournament in November with a place in the 2022 Winter Olympics up for grabs.

Head coach, Mike Clancy, said: “This is a very exciting squad and we can’t wait to get going in Korea.

“Make no mistake about it, this was a tough roster to select and many high-quality players have not made the squad.

“Playing for your country is the highest honour and this being an Olympic competition makes it that extra bit special.”
