2 weeks ago By Alex Murray

Today the Solent Devils are pleased to announce the signing of defenceman Drew Mccloskey.

The 20 year old former Wightlink man has iced for the Wightlink Tigers & Buccaneers during the past 5 seasons icing 80 times across league and cup.

Speaking upon signing for Solent, Mccloskey has spoken of his early optimism "I feel enthusiastic and excited to see what the season brings with Solent. I chose Solent because unfortunately the island rink closed down and I feel the Solent coaches and players have a lot to offer. Moving to a team like Solent, I know I need to bring my game to the next level, and as a team we must be looking to achieve a place in the top 3 teams in the league this season."

Head Coach Alex Murray has spoken of the potential Mccloskey has "Drew has skated with us throughout the summer and I like his energy and desire, he has good defensive awareness and plays with no fear, which is vital In a tiny physical rink. Drew knows he will be playing at a slightly higher level than he has before, but I know from speaking to him, he is willing to learn and develop, and I'm keen to help develop Drew also."

The Isle of Wight born will wear the number #11 jersey and is actively looking for a sponsor. If you are interested in sponsoring Drew please contact solentdevils@yahoo.com
