Bison star Wynn called up to GB squad
BASINGSTOKE Bison’s teenage forward Cameron Wynn is delighted to have been selected for the Great Britain under-18 team that will travel to Estonia for the World Championships at Easter.
The 17-year-old from Kempshott is in his first full season with the Herd and in recent weeks has come so close to scoring his first senior goal, having hit the net for every other team in the club since starting his career with the under-10 Bison team.
The Queen Mary’s College student has represented England at various levels, but this will be his GB debut.
Wynn said: “I am really looking forward to it and I have never played in Estonia so that will be a new experience for me and I can’t wait.”
Wynn is one of only a handful of teenage English Premier League players and he is hoping he can impress so that he will be picked for GB under-20s next season.
He has a couple of training camps in Sheffield and Dundee, before he heads to the Baltic state for the Division Two Group A competition, where GB will face Hungary, Lithuania, Romania, Croatia and Estonia.
The team’s first game is against Estonia on March 31, followed by Hungary the following day.
After a day’s break, next up will be Lithuania and then Romania, with the final game on April 6 against Croatia.
Last season, GB finished fourth in the group having beaten Croatia 6-0, but they lost narrowly 3-2 to Romania and 7-3 to Lithuania.
