Team GB Under 20s Take Silver

Great Britain Under-20s have won the silver medal at the U20 World Championship Division II Group A in Vilnius.

Included in the squad was netminder Tyler Perre who has been training with the Devils for the last few weeks and had been backing up Ben Bowns throughout November and December.


GB's final-day 5-2 victory over Serbia Under-20s, coupled with Japan U20s 5-2 win over Lithuania U20s meant GB claimed second place.

Japan take home the gold medal and immediate promotion back to Division I, while Lithuania have to settle for the bronze medal. 

GB led 2-0 at the first intermission thanks to a neat finish from Sam Russell on the powerplay (14:23), while Ed Bradley cut inside from the right to fire past Bojan Vasiv (16:59).

Serbia drew level with a pair of powerplay goals through Marko Mladenovic (22:41) and Aleksa Gvozdenovic (34:29).

Third-period goals from Alex Graham  (50:37), Finley Ulrick (56:53) and Cade Neilson from a feed behind the net (59:24) wrapped up GB’s fourth successive win.
