This evening, the Solent Devils are delighted to announce the return of English Netminder, Mark Duffy.
Duffy signed for 2020-21 and after many false starts to the season, Duffy commenced with the Devils during the Spring Series Cup series demonstrating his capabilities to a full house on the Solent Devils Youtube streaming Channel as the team took the silverware.
With a career 130 games and an SVP of .857% Duffy comments on signing
“I hope to do everything I can for the team when needed and to keep pushing Chico all season.”
Head Coach Alex Murray commented
“Duffy is someone who I’ve known since a kid, when we played a lot of in-line together! We’ve always discussed him playing with the Devils but it never materialised until the Spring Cup. Duffy has settled in well and is experienced enough to push Chico and his a big presence in net for us. We have a strong goalie tandem and Mark is a crucial part of that.”
Talking about his goals for the season Duffy added
“…Looking forward to a season where we can really get on some good winning streaks, upset some of the ‘big’ teams and really push for some silverware.”
“Taking part in the summer cup meant that we had a great opportunity to get the cobwebs off after a long time away and to set ourselves up for a big season to come. For me it was a great chance to get to know all the boys before the first full season and see what it means to be a Devil in training and at game time.”
Speaking about what he will contribute Duffy said
“I hope to bring a bit of experience to a quite young group and I hope to bring some top performances at the weekends. I’m the type of guy that will do anything to help the team and I’m looking forward to helping the boys towards silverware and a deep playoff run.”
Duffy will return to the Devils in shirt #98. If you would like to sponsor a Devil or become a team sponsor, contact email@example.com
