Houston gets Great Britain U18 call-up

Great Britain U18 have made a change to their roster for next month’s World Championship tournament in Tallinn.

Solway Sharks’ youngster Lewis Houston has replaced Sam Talbot who has withdrawn due to injury.

Britain will face hosts Estonia, along with Australia, Korea, Lithuania and Poland in Division 2A of the World Championship structure.

The six-team IIHF tournament runs from 1st to 7th April 2018.

Interim head coach, Tony Hand, said: “It is obviously a blow to lose Sam but we have a talented player replacing him in Lewis.

“This is not the first change we have had to make because of injury, but it shows we have depth in the squad.

“There is a lot of good young talent in the GB programme and we are taking a strong-looking squad to Tallinn.”
