The four-team tournament, which is being held in Barcelona, takes place from April 7 to 9.

GB and Spain are expected to be joined by Poland and Hungary, although that still has to be officially confirmed.

Britain go into the competition on the back of winning the four-team international tournament in Dumfries in December, where they beat Belgium, Netherlands and Spain.

Cochrane (15), a defenceman with Fife Falcons, captained the side while Kelly (16), currently on a scholarship in Ontario, Canada, also featured.

GB U16s head coach, Robert Wilkinson, said: “We’re hoping to continue the progress we made in Dumfries.”
