The YKK Widnes Wild are pleased to announce that Berwyn Hughes will be returning to the club for the forthcoming 2018/19 Laidler Division season.
The 23 year old played his junior hockey at Deeside and Altrincham before switching to Telford where he played 28 NIHL North 1 with the Titans team over the 2012/13 and 13/14 seasons.
Hughes joined Tom Ratcliffe gaining experience in the USA in 2015/16 playing 32 games for Charlotte Rush in the USPHL tier 3 junior league. He joined the Wild for the 2014/15 season and will be returning for his 4th league campaign this time around. Bez has played 105 games for Widnes, scoring 17+32 and picking up 182 PIM.
Talking about his return to the Wild for another season, Bez said:
“It’s good to be coming back into the Wild locker room for another season. I’m looking forward to getting back at it this year in front of the best fans in the league.
This year is looking good and Ollie is getting a strong team together so this year is looking good and I’m happy and proud to be coming back for a 4th season.”
Bez will once again wear the number 20 shirt and his home, away and warm-up shirts are available to own ‘n’ loan here.
The YKK Widnes Wild still have season tickets available starting at £60 and further information is available on the YKK Widnes Wild Website or from Planet Ice Widnes.
