The match was officiated by the experienced pairing of Elite League linesman James Kavanagh and Ice Hockey UK referee-in-chief Simon Kirkham.

GB Women's head coach, Cheryl Smith, said: "This was very special for the girls and it is something which will grow year on year.

"For them to be part of it at some stage in their career is fantastic.

"We have some real prospects in the GB Women's programme and we are getting to work with them now from the age of 10 to 11.

"We are now able to bring them through with the GB's Women's culture, putting them in a good stead for the future.”
