Great Britain Under-18 Women have named their squad for the upcoming World Championship (Division 1 Qualification) in Austria.

The tournament, which takes place from 7th to 11th January 2016, is split into two groups of four.

GB will be based in Radenthein and will take on Italy, Poland and Australia in Group B.

Hosts Austria, along with China, Kazakhstan and Romania, make up Group A.

Each group winner will play in the gold-medal game on the final day of the tournament to win the right for promotion to Division 1.

Coach, Michelle Smith, said: “It has been a tough selection process but we believe we have a very good squad.

“Some players are unfortunate to miss out as the rules state they are too young for the tournament.

“I think that shows we have some great up-and-coming talent in the program.

“This will be a great test for the youngsters and I know they are looking forward to it.”
