Depth continues as Evans, Preston and Gilmartin all go Wild!
Following the last open trial team manager Mick Caunce is pleased to announce three more to the growing squad. Ex Fylde Flyer D-man Troy Evans is the first of the trio joining the new rink. After being ever-present at the pre-trials and the trials we were keen to catch up with Troy to find out more about the young defender.
Mick Caunce said;
“Troy is a young player and when he puts his mind to it can compete at the highest level. He still has a lot to learn and is willing to work hard for his place on the team”
Troy is joined by Chris Preston who for the last couple of seasons has been playing Recreational level hockey for the very successful Blackburn Falcons team. Preston is a product of the Blackburn Junior Development and is a hard working forward who is not afraid of mixing it with the big boys!
“Preston puts everything into his game and plays with a True Grit style! If everyone on the team plays like Preston we will be pushing for a top spot in no time”
NM Steve Gilmartin also joins this week. Gilmartin also played for Flyers two seasons ago before moving to Belfast last season. Playing for there SNL team Gilmartin was able to train with there Elite team the Belfast Giants and gained some great experience with there outfit.
Mick Caunce and the Wild coaching team are looking to be signing more players within the coming weeks;
“Other targets have been invited to attend sessions at the rink and we are in talks with several major signing who are undecided where they will ice next season.”
