Telford Tigers would like to provide their fans with an update on club captain Jason Silverthorn’s playing status ahead of the 2023/24 season.
Jason commented, “I wanted to address the question marks surrounding my surgery last season and the recovery period. I will be taking a step away from the game of hockey as a player until I get healthy and can make a more informed decision on my future. It would be selfish of me to ask Telford Tigers to commit to me playing at this point in time, as well as unfair on my family. I need to have the surgery and then reevaluate my situation.”
Jason also has a message for the fans, “I want to say thank you to the Tigers’ Fans, Tigers organisation, my team mates (past and present) and my family for the help and support since my injury. I wish Tom Watkins and all at Telford Tigers good luck with the start of the season and hopefully, when I’m healthy, I can return to help the club win more trophies! All the best #22.”
Head Coach Tom Watkins, commented, “Jason has been an instrumental leader for this club on and off the ice. He has led from the front since the day he arrived with his professionalism, work ethic and talent, he’s been a contributor in the clubs successes, lifting multiple league and cup trophies. His drive and will to win is something that is infectious and he has helped to create a winning culture in the dressing room. Everyone at the club wishes him all the best with his injury.”
