Welcome Home to Tom Carlon

#23 Carlon Joins Tigers

Welcome Home to Tom Carlon. Hexagon Telford Tigers are pleased to announce the signing of local player #23 Tom Carlon.  The addition of Tom is a boost for the team following some recent departures and injuries to key players in recent times.

Tom brings size, depth and experience to the Tigers forward line, having started his playing career in Telford before icing for Coventry Blaze, Bracknell Bees, Slough Jets, Peterborough Phantoms, Milton Keynes Lightning, Abu Dhabi Storm and more recently back in Milton Keynes with MK Thunder. 

Telford Tigers Head Coach and General Manager Tom Watkins is excited to welcome Tom back to Shropshire commenting; “I am very pleased to add a player of Tom’s quality and experience. We’ve been looking extensively to add to the roster and have been discussing the possibility with Tom for a number of weeks. Tom is from Telford originally but lives over in Coventry. He played his junior hockey and began his senior hockey career here, his family live here which is part of the appeal for sure. I actually used to take TC with me when we were both playing for the Blaze, so spent a lot of time travelling together. I think we get a solid player who can play in our top six, he has a good offensive and defensive game. He adds size, grit and is a real handful to stop when he’s going hard to the net. I am delighted to add him to the team.”

Tom said on his return to wearing the famous Tigers colours “Telford ice rink was where it all started for me. I first put a pair of skates on at the age of 5, after going each week to watch my older cousin play for the Tigers. So, when Tommy [Watkins] offered me the chance to come home and play again, where my family can come and watch regularly, it was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. I’m excited to be part of the Tigers organisation again.” 

Tom’s #23 own and loan shirts are available for £125 each (Home and Away). Please see the Tigers online shop for details.

Tigers would like to thanks Integrated Electrical for taking Tom’s individual player sponsorship.
