Royal Liberty pupil Brad Windebank and the England under-13s were bidding to keep their World Pee-Wee Championship dream alive in Canada in the early hours of this morning.

The squad were due to play last-16 rivals Megeve in Quebec’s Pepsi Colisee at 8.30pm local time, having already beaten Delemont Fantomes (9-1) and Beauce-Centre Baroudeurs in the International C division.

And if successful they will face Montmagny or Victoriaville tonight (Friday).

The touring party, which included former Romford Raiders defenceman Ben Pitchley as assistant coach, began their preparations with a 4-1 challenge match win over Ste-Foy Gouverneurs, before losing 5-3 to the junior team from the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche.

And they skated to a 2-0 victory over Team Wendy before the main event began.

An outdoor match against New Brunswick Pioneers ended in a 6-1 success and England have also beaten Rouyan Noranda (7-1), Grenoble (5-4) and Quebec Ouest (8-0) in exhibition matches to date.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
