Jesson Returns for Tigers. The Hexagon Telford Tigers are pleased to announce the return of 21-year-old forward Brodie Jesson for the remainder of the 2021/22 season. Brodie will return to his boyhood club after a little time away from the ice in Telford and will wear the #61 shirt.
Having iced through the age ranges for Telford Tigers junior sides, Jesson spent 2019-20 mixing NIHL National duties with Milton Keynes Lightning and Leeds Chiefs. He also found time for a few games in the NIHL 2 Laidler Conference with Hexagon Telford Tigers 2 where he averaged a goal a game. More recently he has been icing for Solihull Barons.
On the confirmation of his return, Brodie said “I’m really excited to be back with the Tigers for the rest of the season after a short while away from the club. I’ve missed playing at home and can’t wait to get going again with the boys.”
Telford Tigers head coach Tom Watkins is pleased to have signed Brodie for the remainder of the season commenting “We’ve been on the lookout for a replacement since Dan Mitchell stepped down and I’m looking forward to welcoming Brodie back to Telford. I believe when Brodie chose to move onto MK it was the right decision for him at the time, a decision we respected, sadly things didn’t work out for him but we stayed in touch and he was always keen to return. The timing is right now for us as a club and we believe we are getting a more mature player and person from the one that left. We know the rigours of this league you are always carrying injuries and we will be losing 3 players in December for 3 games to the GB 20’s so adding a player is very important for us. Brodie will be back on the ice with us this week.”
Brodie’s own and loan shirts are available to order now for £100 each (Home and Away) and Brodies’ Christmas Jersey is also available to order for £75. Please see the Tigers’ Online Shop for details.
In the 2021/22 season, Tigers are again offering individual player sponsorship at £400. The package will include a personalised ‘SPECIAL’ exclusive third jersey with a company name or family name patch, announcements on match nights, a small advert or logo in the match night programmes and a signed player photo.
