Latest Glasgow Clan signing Craig Moore says the chance to work with coach Pete Russell can help him in his dream in turning out for the Great Britain national team one day.

The 23-year-old arrives from Scottish rivals, Fife Flyers where he spent the second half of last season and he admits the chance to impress Russell to help him reach the international stage played a big part of his decision.

“My ambition to play for the Great Britain national team was a big reason why I wanted to move to Glasgow,” he said.  “Whenever you can play under the coach you’re trying to play for, that’s always going to be a big help.

“You’re going to be around them every single day and learning how they coach so it definitely played a part in my decision and I hope it’ll help me push for a place in the GB national team in the future.”

Moore’s defection from the Flyers is one that will no doubt trigger a reaction and he’s expecting a response to the news. But he insists the decision was for him and the route he wants to take in his career going forward.

He added: “I’m excited to be a part of the Clan.  It’s a great organisation and I think everyone knows that. I’ll get a mixed reaction from the Fife fans because of the rivalry between the teams. At the end of the day, opportunities come and you have to decide what’s best for you and I’ve done that.”
