McTimoney Chiropractic Bracknell Hornets are pleased to announce, 27 year old Callum Best from the Invicta Dynamos.



Callum kick started his senior hockey in 2008 with the Guildford Flames in the EPIHL where he played a total of 30 games and assisted to 1 while also playing with the under 18’s Phoenix where he played 14 games, scored 27 goals, assisted to 26 and sat for a total of 18 penalty minutes. Since then Callum has been playing with various teams including Slough Jets, Basingstoke Bisons and Streatham RedHawks.



Callum has also played in Bracknell with the Bees during the 2009-10 season where he played for a total of 38 games, scored 6 goals, assisted to 2 and sat for a total of 7 penalty minutes. He also played again for the Bees for the 2017-18 season where he played 27 games, scored 14 goals, assisted to 22 and sat for a total of 24 minutes.



Last season, Callum played for the Invicta Dynamos for a total of 30 games where he scored 6 goals, assisted to 11 and sat for a total of 30 minutes in the penalty box.



After signing for the team, Callum Best said “I’m excited to get started with the Hornets for the upcoming season, I know a lot of the players from previous seasons and I know we will be looking to have a successful year. I want to get scoring quickly and help the team start the season well, and I feel that I’ve got a good opportunity to do that this season with the team that’s been put together.



The team looks strong and I’m looking forward to contributing to what this team can achieve, I know I can bring a lot of offensive help and am determined to do that this season. See you in September!”



Head Coach Mark Saunders said “Callum is one of the premier British players at this level without a doubt and I’m over the moon that he’s committed to the Hornets for the coming season. His offensive abilities are well known and are proven on every team he’s played for and I know he is determined to have a standout year this season for us and show again why he’s one of the best players in the league.



The scoring upside that he brings to our team means we have a player who can put the puck in the net in big moments and also steady the team when needed, due to his vast experience at this level and previously the EPL. He will be a leader for us on and off the ice, shouldered with responsibility of big minutes in big situations and I know he’s raring to get started.



I’m delighted to announce Callum as our last singing and that our roster is now complete. I look forward to seeing you at the opening games against Streatham in a couple of weeks!”



We are also delighted to say that Callum’s jerseys are now available for £100 each or both for £150. To apply, please contact us via email at info@bracknellhornets.com.
