Kerry: More to come from GB

06 May 2012 / 18:44

Great Britain coach Danny Kerry believes his side have plenty of improvement to make ahead of this summer's Olympics after winning the test event.

Two second-half penalty corner goals from Leicester defender Crista Cullen secured a 2-0 win over Argentina in the final at the Riverbank Arena.

The victory was not without cost, however, as star striker Alex Danson was forced off with a painful shoulder injury which is still being assessed while Cullen sprained an ankle in the act of scoring the second.

In keeping the world champions, albeit without their major players, at bay GB ensured they did not concede a goal in all four matches of the tournament but Kerry still knows his team have lots more to give.

"Results are pretty meaningless," he admitted afterwards.

"It is nice to play in a final and have that sense of expectation, which is good experience, but we probably played at about 60%. I hope that does not sound arrogant because I think China and Korea played at 40% and Argentina were missing their `uber stars`.

"I don't think we have hit our straps here at all. There are many variables and one of those is the permutations and constant changing of players and that leads to inconsistency."

The only downside were the injuries, particularly Danson who is the side's main attacking threat.

"It feels a little bitter-sweet for me," said captain Kate Walsh.

"It was brilliant to win and get another clean sheet but it is tinged with a bit of sadness with the two injuries. But looking forward we have so much more to give and that is good position to be in."
