The Nottingham Lions are delighted to announce that 17-year-old Danny Rose has been called up to the Great Britain Under-18′s squad that will travel to the IIHF World Under 18s Division 2a Championships in Heerenveen, Holland on the 31st March.
The week long tournament, will see the cream of Britain’s young talent take on the likes of Lithuania, Korea and the hosts, Holland in a bid to gain promotion to IIHF Division 1.
This is just another in a series of call-ups for the talented Nottingham born teenager, who has previously been selected for England Juniors and the Midland Conference select side.
Rose, who has been playing the sport since he was five, has come through the ranks at Nottingham Ice Hockey Club and is currently icing for their Under-18′s and their senior team the Nottingham Lions.
Lions General Manager Danny Harrison was obviously delighted to hear the news saying; “It’s testament to all the hard work Danny has put in – he’s had a great season so far and he’s only going to get better with age and an experience like this will only benefit him further”.
“A lot of the credit also has to go to the brilliant coaches we have here at Nottingham Ice Hockey Club – he’s been here since he was almost knee-high and all of our volunteers can rightly feel proud about the part they’ve played in getting Danny to where he is today – it’s a proud day for the organisation and we hope many more youngsters here can follow in his footsteps in the not-too-distant future.”
