The Solent Devils are today delighted to announce the return of defenceman, Calumn Perella-Fox.
“Calumn is a team first guy,” says Devils head coach, Alex Murray, “he is one of the hardest working members of the team. Calumn settled back in to the club really well last season, and so it was a no brainer to ask him to return.”
Perella-Fox, obviously happy to be back for his second consecutive season and his fourth season in his senior career says
“The atmosphere in the dressing room was always great at Solent, which made the hockey fun. The professionalism within the team and the support we get from our fans is something else, it makes Solent a great place to play.”
Perella-Fox played 30 games for the Devils last season, picking up the Shane Clacy Award at the Devils end of season presentation evening.
“Last season, I feel I started off slow,” Perella-Fox says, looking back on the previous year, “but I eventually found my feet. I still feel I have a lot more I can bring to the team. I need to continue building my confidence on the ice, but I am hopeful that I will bring something valuable on game days in the new season.”
Despite the reserved attitude from the defenceman, Murray seems to view him in a good light simply stating
“Calumn is a very strong defender who reads the game well, he trains hard and competes in every drill and shift.”
As the focus shifts towards the coming season and restructured league as the Devils head in to NIHL 1, Murray continues
“Calumn is ready for the step up in leagues and the challenge that faces all of us. Calumn is determined and hardworking, and I will be looking for him to push on and play more regularly this season.”
“I think we will stand our ground,” Perella-Fox says of the future, “hopefully we will be pushing for the top spots again this year, and we can keep making the fans proud.”
Perella-Fox will be returning in shirt #44 this year. If you are interested in sponsoring a Devils shirt, or becoming a club sponsor, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
