Team GB’s U20 squad will prepare for the World Junior Championships by taking on MK Lightning.

The game, on December 2, will be one of GB’s final fixtures before they head to France later in the month.

Lightning Head Coach, Pete Russell, said he had no hesitation in agreeing to the fixture. He said: “It’s great to be part of the team’s preparation.

“When Tommy Watkins asked me, it was a no brainer.

“The game will be a fantastic chance for our great supporters to see for themselves the best young talent in the UK and to give them a great send off to the World Championships.”

GB U20s head coach, Tommy Watkins, said: “This is another ideal game to get us prepared for the World Championships.

“I would like to thank Pete and the MK organisation to agreeing to play us and help us prepare in the best possible way.”
