TEAM GB | Brooks Going for Gold in Belfast

This weekend Team GB men's ice hockey team begin their World Championship campaign in Belfast as they take on Croatia (Sunday 23rd), Estonia (Monday 24th), Lithuania (Wednesday 26th), Netherlands (Friday 28th) and Japan (Saturday 29th) at the SSE Belfast Arena.

Fife Flyers forward Brendan Brooks starred in Team GB's warm-up games against Poland, last weekend in Nottingham and Coventry, with each team registering a win.

Following his debut weekend with Team GB Brooks spoke about the squad's expectations going into the World Championships. "It was a great experience to put on the Great Britain jersey for the first time.”

"It has been a while since I was in a game so I feel it was very important to have those games in order to prepare for the upcoming championship games."

Brooks admitted that there is a difference between club hockey and international hockey, but it was something he relished.

"In international hockey the level of play is a lot faster. You have some of the best players from the country on the same ice."

Belfast's SSE Arena hosts the 1B World Championships for the first time and with a large support expected to back Pete Russell's side, Brooks knows that everyone is aiming to deliver Gold.

"We have a hard week of preparation ahead of us for these championships. Working on team systems and making sure, as individuals, we are ready and in top form for the upcoming games."

"The team expectations, with the talent and personnel we have, is to win the gold.”

"We’re all working towards the same goal. Whatever it takes for the country to make sure we play our best and give ourselves the opportunity to win."
