Solent sign Doughty

1 year ago By Alex Murray

Tonight the Solent Devils are delighted to announce the signing of British forward Aidan Doughty from the Wightlink Raiders.

The 21 year old former Raider joins the club following the withdrawal of Wightlink from the league last week.

Previous to the start of this season Aidan spent 3 years in the WSHL for the Boulder Jr Bison and the Colorado Roughriders respectively. During this time he iced iced 110 times scoring 34 goals and notched 41 assist. In his last season as a junior Raider the 6'2 winger amassed 72 points in 16 games.

Speaking on signing for the Devils island born player said he can't wait to get started "I feel good about signing. I can't wait to play for a team who keeps on developing and keeps getting stronger, hopefully I can put up some good points and help the team reach a top position in the table."

Head coach Alex Murray has spoken of the potential Doughty has "I spoke to Aidan during the summer, but with EPL clubs and the Raiders interested in his signing I didn't expect to have him on our roster this year. Due to the unfortunate events on the island we have managed to secure Aidan's services for the remainder of the season and I'm delighted! Aidan is a top 6 forward on any team in this league and will add offence and scoring to our team. I am expecting Aidan to hit the ground running and the team are exiting we have attracted another big name to the Gosport Arena"

Aidan who will wear the number 12 jersey, will make his debut this weekend as the Devils take to the road on both nights.
