More exciting news for Telford Tigers as the club are pleased to announce the return of Matt Price to the blue line for a further season.
Price is another player on the roster who has progressed his way through the Telford junior hockey system and has developed into a key, versatile hockey player. The 21-year old has been a part of ice hockey in Telford for the past eight seasons, appearing on the rosters for Telford Venom, Trojans, Titans and Tigers.
Matt is well respected player and has been Tigers 2’s assistant captain for the past two seasons. Back in April, fans saw the defenceman scoop up the players’ player award at the end of season presentation evening for a second consecutive season.
Tigers 2 coach Ces has coached Price during his junior years and is delighted to have secured him for another season commenting;
“I’m very happy that Pricey is back this season. He has a very busy year ahead of him and because of work and college commitments he wasn’t sure if he was going to come back; but after a good chat, I’m glad he’s back.
“Matt is a great asset to the team; he can play any position and I know that he is a fan favourite. The team look up to him, he’s a natural leader both on and off the ice.”
Matt is pleased to have made the decision to return to Tigers 2 again this season commenting;
“I’m thrilled to return to Tigers 2 this year after a disappointing end to last season, there is a lot of unfinished business!”
Last season, Tigers 2 found their playoff journey come to a disappointing end after a semi-final defeat against Hull Jets.
“Playing and training under Ces will be an experience and a throwback to juniors which will definitely bring in a fun element to the season which all the lads will certainly be on board with. I’m hoping I can bring some senior experience to a young squad and help them develop and compete at the highest level in the league again. Should be a fun year!”
Matt’s own and loan shirts are available to order now for £75 each (Home and Away). Please see the Telford Tigers online shop for more details.
