Great Britain coach Tom Maher trims squad to 14

Great Britain’s women coach Tom Maher has trimmed his squad to 14, just days before wrapping up the team’s training camp in Stirling.
Jo Wood, Kate Butters and Lauren Thomas-Johnson have all been released after three weeks of twice-daily practices.

“They’ve all been honest soldiers,” said Maher. “Of the three, Kate has the best chance of getting back in but they all worked hard.”

The Australian will now put his remaining players through two more days of workouts before GB travel to Bulgaria for their first warm-up tournament ahead of the European Championship qualifiers.

Kim Butler, who is set to move to the Israeli League next season, has recovered from injury.

Meanwhile it has been confirmed that Nick George will not play for Great Britain's men this summer. The Italian-based forward has withdrawn citing "personal reasons" but his loss is another blow to coach Chris Finch.
