Programme Manager, Paul Murgatroyd, said about the new squads: "I would firstly like to offer my congratulations to all those who have earned selection to these new-look groups.  These three squads include a mix of athletes who have been in the GB Talent squad previously, along with a number of newcomers in the 15-17 year age group, and it will be fascinating to see how all of these young orienteers develop over the coming months.  The new management team is working hard on putting together an exciting programme of camps and opportunities for the squads and I wish them all well with their winter training plans!"
