Griffin back for seventh season
It’s all systems go at Tigers HQ with player announcements coming thick and fast! Today, the Club are pleased to announce the return of another familiar face to Tigers 2. Welcome back Callum Griffin!
The 26-year-old forward first appeared on Telford Ice in 2008 where he began his hockey career progressing through the Telford Junior system. Since then, Griffin has iced for several teams playing out of Telford ice rink such as, Telford Trojans, Titans and then finally Telford Tigers.
As a car salesman by day, Callum has balanced his work life and hockey life for the past few seasons. Last season the Tigers forward managed to bag on average one point for each game he played. Callum has always been an integral part of the Tigers 2 set up – last season Callum played an important role in the team’s leadership group as Assistant to last season’s Captain, Ben Washburn.
Griffin is no stranger to hockey under Scott McKenzie’s lead, having played under his Tigers 2 Coach McKenzie is delighted to have secured Callum for the upcoming season commenting;
“It’s great to see Callum back in a Tigers jersey this year. Another local talented player who has come through the junior system in Telford and has an excellent skill set. Callum is a natural goal scorer and we expect him to put good numbers up this year.”
Griffin, who will be returning to Telford Tigers for a seventh season is looking forward to getting back on the ice with his fellow team mates;
“I’m incredibly excited to be back wearing the Tigers badge for another year. I played for Scotty many years ago, so when we got the news he would be taking over I was excited to say the least. I believe him and Dougie combined will be a formidable coaching team.
With the premature end to last season, I cannot wait to get back on the ice with the boys, it feels like a long time coming and I know we have a point to prove to get back where we belong in the league table.
I hope everyone is staying safe and I can’t wait to see everyone when the season finally starts.”
We would also like to thank Greenhous Vauxhall Telford who have agreed to be Callum’s individual sponsor for a further season. Callum’s own and loan shirts are available to order now for £75 each (Home and Away). Please see the Tigers’ Online Shop for details.
