AARON Nell has missed out on a place in Great Britain's full squad for final Winter Olympic qualifiers.

The Wildcats captain attended a two-day training camp in Manchester with the preliminary squad earlier this week in a bid to impress head coach Tony Hand.

However, the forward has not made the cut for the Group E showdown from February 7-10 in Latvia, and will instead be one of nine reserves on stand-by.

Basingstoke's Greg Owen is the only EPL player to make the full squad.

Great Britain won gold at the 1936 Winter Games in Germany but have not qualified since 1948.

GB squad for final qualifiers: Ben Bowns (Hull Stingrays), Stephen Murphy (Belfast Giants), Danny Meyers (Sheffield Steelers), Ben O’Connor (Arlan Kokshetau), Dave Phillips (Belfast Giants), Mark Richardson (Cardiff Devils), Rod Sarich (Sheffield Steelers), Mark Thomas (Sheffield Steelers), Jonathan Weaver (Nottingham Panthers), David Clarke (Nottingham Panthers), Robert Dowd (Troja-Ljungby), Robert Farmer (Braehead Clan), Mark Garside (Belfast Giants), Jason Hewitt (Sheffield Steelers), Phil Hill (Cardiff Devils), Robert Lachowicz (Nottingham Panthers), Matthew Myers (Nottingham Panthers), Greg Owen (Basingstoke Bison), Craig Peacock (Belfast Giants), Jonathan Phillips (Sheffield Steelers), Colin Shields (Belfast Giants), Ashley Tait (Sheffield Steelers).

Reserves: Stevie Lyle (Basingstoke Bison), Geoff Woolhouse (Sheffield Steelers), Stevie Lee (Nottingham Panthers), Kevin Phillips (Braehead Clan), Russ Cowley (Coventry Blaze), Ben Davies (Cardiff Devils), Matty Davies (Hull Stingrays), Leigh Jamieson (Milton Keynes Lightning), Aaron Nell (Swindon Wildcats).
