Bracknell Hornets are excited to announce 20 year old British forward Will Stead has signed for the 2019/20 Season.

Will is a regular face in Bracknell having played with the Bracknell Ice Hockey Club starting with the under 11s, having now reached his 6th season with the Hornets having played in 27 fixtures with the Hornets last season scoring 10 goals and assisted to 25 and sat for a total of 52 minutes in the penalty box.

He joins Steve Osman, Tamas Elias, Michael Stratford, Connor Hutchison and the Early-Newman brothers Ben and Josh for the forthcoming campaign. Bracknell Hornets Head Coach Mark Saunders is pleased to have Will back for another season.

Head Coach Mark Saunders said “Will is an offensively gifted player and that will play a large part in our team success this coming season. Working with the team staff I fell Wills can take the next step in developing the defensive side of his play this season, utilising his speed and playing under the puck in his own end. He is a great player to have in the dressing room and most importantly is Bracknell through and through. I’m delighted he’s back with us for the 2019-20 season.”

After signing with Hornets, Will comments “I’m really happy to be back playing with the Hornets again next year – I’m really excited to get the season started with the boys. Saunders and Foordy have put a really good team together and I feel like we can compete at the top of the new league set up. I look forward to seeing you all at our first games in September. “

Will Stead stands 6’1” (185cm), weighs 161lbs (73kg) and shoots with his right.

We are also pleased to say that Will’s Players Sponsorship Jerseys are also available at £100 each of both his home and away for £150.
