WEEKEND TEAM NEWS
Following the news announced earlier, the Solent Devils have additional roster changes ahead of this weekend’s fixture against Romford Junior Raiders.
The Devils are delighted to announce that after icing for the Bison in preseason fixtures, Elliot Lewis has been called up this weekend to play for the Basingstoke Bison in the National League.
Head Coach Alex Murray has spoken of his delight
Elliot has been working hard all season, training with the Bison weekly, so I’m delighted he has been called upon this week
In additional to Circenis and Lewis, the Devils will be without Ben Lock and Dan Lackey who both picked up injuries last weekend. With this in mind, Head Coach Alex Murray has called up Charlie Wedge, Riley Panter & Kristijonas Nekrosevicius from the Solent Junior Devils NIHL 2 squad.
Commenting on the team news, Murray spoke of the opportunities for young players
Whilst it’s not ideal to be missing 4-5 of our top 10 players over the next few weeks, it provides an opportunity for others to step up, including those we have signed on two ways from the Junior Devils. We are delighted we have such a positive relationship with the Junior club and I’m impressed with Charlie, Kris and Riley in training. They will be ready if called upon on Saturday to show what they can do
Solent face off against the Raiders at 5pm Saturday 13th November with tickets still available at https://iceaccount.co.uk/ice-events/gosport/event/?event_id=6141
