Joe Aston Returns for Tigers. Telford Tigers are pleased to announce the return of Joe Aston for the 2021/22 season. Aston will wear the number 21 shirt and was part of the club’s double winning team scoring 11 points for the team. This will be the fifth season at the club for the versatile forward.

Aston stated, “I’m very pleased to be back with the Tigers. It is such a great hockey family from the lads in the dressing room to the fans in the stands. After what was such a rewarding season for us in 2019/20, I cannot wait to put in the hard work to make it all happen again.”

Tom Watkins, Head Coach and General Manager, said, “I’m pleased to have another returning player from our double winning team to the line up. He’s part of a strong group that interact very well together and stick together on the ice. He’s a local lad, who gives us options, he can play up and down the line up, he’s got good skating ability, can protect the puck down low and play a strong direct game. He’s a player who is still young, still improving, but what I like about Joe is that he is keen to keep improving, he wants to add different elements to his game and I really like that attitude. He has a big desire to keep getting better all the time. He puts the work in off the ice which shows in his conditioning and strength. Joe is a character guy in our team and I’m expecting that again this season.”              

Telford Tigers would like to thank Deb and Tasha Leigh-Willetts for the continuing support in agreeing to return as Joe’s personal sponsor.
