2023 – 24 Signing Alert – Alex Cole

Solent’s Captain returns

Today the Solent Devils are delighted to announce the re-signing of club captain, Alex Cole for the 2023-24 season. 

Returning for his 14th season, Cole, who holds the record appearances for Solent spoke of his excitment for next season:

“Another season incoming! It feels great, I love the game and the people in and around it. Without ice hockey, life would be a repeat of work over and over and it gives me great satisfaction to have something to work hard for and commit to.”

Head Coach Alex Murray, spoke of the importance in retaining his captain:

“Coley is an important piece of our core that has seen us been one of the most successful defensive cores in the last 4-5 years! With the changes in our line up, it was important to get Alex back to lead our defence in this up and coming season”

With brother Chico retiring, Alex, who was awarded Defenceman of the year, spoke how this year will be different in many ways:

“Well it won’t be the same that’s for sure, playing along side him since 5 years old has of course brought us close together. It’s a shame as he’s year after year performing as one of the top goalies in the country. The car journeys won’t be the same, we’ll definitely miss him but times have to move on and I’m sure Muz will find a suitable replacement to give us the best chance of competing at the top.”

The British defenceman, who recorded his highest scoring season at this level last year with 7 goals and 17 assists, will return wearing his famous #8 jersey. If you are interested in sponsoring Alex, please contact Kerry on devilssupporters@outlook.com
