The RTL Widnes Wild are pleased to announce the re-signings of Ken Armstrong and Mike Mawer.
“King Kenny” Armstrong has played more games in a Wild shirt than any other player in the clubs shorts history and was one of the first players to commit to the club when it started in 2013.
Speaking on the return of Ken, Player-coach Ollie Baron said;
“Ken is long serving player, who will do anything he can to help the team, he’s a true team mate and a top guy to have in the changing room. Ken has played 113 games for the Wild and I felt it was important to have Ken on our roster.”
Ken will continue to wear the #9 shirt for the Wild and his home, away and warm-up shirts are available to own ‘n’ loan.
One of Ollie’s first signings last year, Mike “Biff” Mawer played 24 league games for the Wild last season as well as representing GB University team.
“Biff is a player who I have know for a few years now, he’s a great guy to have in the changing room, I expect Mike to have a more productive season on the ice this year”, Ollie commented.
When asked about re-signing for the Wild, Mike said;
“I’m excited to return for the upcoming season, Widnes is a great set up with a great fan base. Looking at the returning team and new signings I’m positive we can push on from last season. A personal goal for this season is having more of an impact out on the ice as and where required”
Mike will once again wear the #85 shirt for the Wild and his home and away playing shirts can be own ‘n’ loaned for just £75 each.
Widnes Wild start pre-season training this Thursday evening, in preparation for the start of the season and our pre season friendly with Bristol Pitbulls on the 27th August.
