Hand impressed by young talent in Great Britain programme

National development head coach Tony Hand says he was impressed with some of the young talent on show at today’s Great Britain U16 camp.

Some of the brightest young prospects in the GB programme were put through their paces at the one-day camp at iceSheffield.

The players were overseen by Hand and the GB U16 coaching staff, led by head coach Steven Lynch.

Hand said: “We have some fantastic young players in the Great Britain programme and there is some outstanding talent.

“It was a very good camp and it was great to see these youngsters get the chance to impress in front of the coaches.

“These players are our future and it brilliant to see that the programme has some talented players coming through.

“Myself and the coaching staff were very impressed with what we saw. The talent and commitment was very impressive and great to see.”
