Woman represent Whitley on Team GB

It’s with great pleasure that we wish Casey Traill (Tomahawks) and Kaitlyn Butterfield (Braves) success after they have been selected to represent Team GB Woman’s U18 team this January. They will take on hosts Poland, along with China, Denmark, Italy and Kazakhstan in the World Championship Division One Qualifier.

Head Coach Terry Matthews said “To have two girls in the England squad again is a great feather in our cap”

Braves Manager Jo Newton also added “It is a massive honour for both girls, especially Kaitlyn as she will be captain this time. The standard of competition will be incredibly high but I have no doubt both girls will do us proud. ”

Their first game will be on Monday 19th January, with further games on the 21st, 22nd, 24th and 25th. We will follow them all the way, and keep you informed with all the latest developments.

Both girls were featured in Monday’s (5th Jan) Evening Chronicle, which gave an incredible write up of their journey still to come.
