Today, the Solent Devils are pleased to announce netminder, Rory Martin-Edwards, who is joining the Devils on a two-way agreement with NIHL 2 Devils.
“I am really excited about coming to Solent, as I am a Portsmouth local so will be playing for my home club! I am also really looking forward to training with Chico, he is an amazingly talented netminder with lots of experience to pass on.”
“I’m really pleased Rory has joined the club,” says Devils head coach, Alex Murray, enthusiastically. “He is a great young goaltender with size and capability to really grow and develop to be a top player at this level.”
Last season, Martin-Edwards played 23 games across NIHL 1 and 2, posting a 4.39 GAA and an impressive 89.14 SV% – including 1 shut out.
“I have been playing ice hockey since I was 8 and have just finished under 18s at Bracknell,” Martin-Edwards says, “where I was also the NIHL 2 Wasps netminder, plus I also iced for both the Bees and the Hornets during last season.”
Murray, with some serious strength in his netminders and excited with this new development prospect finishes by saying
“Rory has experience of senior hockey at Bracknell, and it will be good for him to work with Chico and Duffy, pushing them both for a spot in the top two! Rory will share his time with the NIHL 2 team, so he will get as much ice time and experience as possible, helping to continue his development.”
