“Carl is another player that had I had to keep for the upcoming season and I’m delighted he’s signed back with us for the 2019-20 season. His playing experience is vast and spans throughout every league in the country and his time in Bracknell with the Bees and Hornets has made him somewhat of a legend here. Over the past two seasons especially he has been a stellar defenceman whilst also helping the younger players progress at the same time which shows how much strength he brings to our team. He is another key part of our defensive unit and Carl will be relied upon to log big minutes as well as help bring through some younger players with his knowledge and leadership each night we play. ”

Mark’s a great coach and I enjoyed our time together during the second half of last season and I think he has all the attributes to take this team to the next level in this league. I’ll be looking to come back as fit as possible off the back of the ball hockey world championships and start the season strong. “
