Another day, another signing for Telford Tigers! Today we welcome back defence-man Conor Gordon to the Tigers 2 roster!
Conor, 21; is yet again another player who is known in Telford, having iced for a Telford Team since 2009, apart from three seasons where the defence-man iced for Solihull Barons and Nottingham Lions. Starting off with Telford Venom, Gordon has progressed his way through the Telford hockey system appearing on the roster for Telford Trojans, Titans, and Tigers.
Tigers 2 player coach Callum Bowley is looking forward to having Conor back on the Tigers 2 roster commenting;
“I’m really pleased to welcome Connor back for the upcoming season after he made a hard decision to take a step back from hockey to focus on work and family commitments last season. He’s a player that plays with an edge, battles every night and has the capability to be a really solid defence-man in our league. He improves our defensive core and will provide much more depth and competition for places, which was an area I wanted to address from last season.”
Gordon, who will be returning to Tigers 2 after taking a season out is delighted to be returning commenting;
“I’m excited to re-sign with the Tigers after taking a year out to focus on work and family commitments, I’m looking forward to the new season head and building on last year’s progress that the lads made last year. I think our goals for this season are to be to make the top of the table and then take that into playoffs, and win them as well.”
Conor’s #13 own and loan shirts are available to order now for £50 each (Home and Away). Please see the own and loan registration page for more details and to register.
