Signing Alert – Dan Shier

The Solent Devils are pleased to announce that Dan Shier will be joining the Solent Devils for his third consecutive season with the club.

“I’m really happy to be back playing for the Devils this year,” says Shier, “We have a great squad and a great team ethic which gives us an edge in tight games, and I think we’re capable of anything.”

Devils head coach, Alex Murray said

“Dan is a great young player with bags of potential, who fits seamlessly into our group of players.  His work ethic and ability to stand up for his teammates means his role within the team is invaluable.”

Last season, Shier played 30 games scoring 6 goals and earning 4 assists with 32 penalty minutes.

“I felt I played a bigger all-round role on the team last year,” said Shier, “I’m looking forward to stepping up again in the higher league.”

Murray, simply says

“Dan settled into his role last year and made improvements to his game as he continues to develop with the Devils.”

As thoughts turn towards the upcoming season, Murray continues

“Dan will be tested in the new NIHL 1, but his hard work and determination will ensure he is ready for the challenge.  I am expecting Dan to be relied on more than last season and as a result he had better be ready for the challenge!”

Shier though, knows it will be a team effort and confidently says

“We can’t be underestimated in this league and will be picking up points where people might not expect us to.”

Shier will be returning in shirt #12 next season.  If you are interested in sponsoring a Devils shirt, or becoming a club sponsor, please contact
