Jack Watkins Returns. Telford Tigers are delighted to announce the return of 26 year old forward Jack Watkins for the 2019/20 season. Jack, younger brother of Head Coach Tom Watkins, returns for his third season with the club. Watkins scored a career high 30 goals in all competitions last season.
Jack commented, “I am very happy to be returning to Telford for the forthcoming season. I have enjoyed the last two years here and it was an easy decision to return. I think the new league we are playing in will be a great challenge and I am looking forward to getting back on the ice. We are aiming to be challenging for all the silverware available.”
Tom Watkins, Head Coach and General Manager, said, “Jack is the kind of player every team needs. He competes on every shift and can play on any of the lines, including special teams. He is a physical presence and last season added goals to his game. Jack is the kind of experienced player that the younger players can look to and see how they should compete.”
Jack’s #93 own and loan shirts are available to order now for £100 each (Home and Away). Please see the Tigers’ Online Shop for details.
