Osman returns for full season
Steve Osman has penned a deal to see him extend his stay on the south coast as he commits to another year with the Solent Devils.
Osman, who joined from the Bristol Pitbulls mid way through last season averaged almost 2 points per game with 41pts in 24 appearances.
Speaking on his decision, Osman spoke of his excitement to be back:
I am very excited to be returning to Solent, it’s a great club where I feel so comfortable playing. The fans are amazing and all the staff and players will do anything for you and are a great bunch of people.
It will be great to have a full season with Solent this year and see what we can do as a team, we have lost some big names to retirement but that will bring spots for younger guys to prove themselves and I am excited to pass on some knowledge to those guys and help them to become the players I know they can be.”
The British born forward also reflected on his performance and line mates
I was really happy with my points per game last season and felt we clicked really well as a line. Hopefully I can continue my production and help the team to win big games this year as well. I Can’t wait to hear you noisy Devils fans and hopefully lots of singing along to Country Roads
Speaking about his latest signing, head coach Alex Murray spoke of the importance of retaining Osman:
Steve is an elite player at this level, and has the stats and performances to back that. I was really pleased when Ozzy expressed and interest to return given the commute he has to make each week.
Ozzy will be a senior figure in our room and will help pass on his experience to the younger players as we look to remain in the hunt for trophies
The Damp Group Bristol will continue with their shirt sponsor this year and Steve will wear the number 83 jersey.
