Blackburn Hawks Management and Coaching team would like to announce the return of Net Minder Stuart Ashton for the 2017/2018 season.
Stuart is an all round net minder who is of league and playoff winning pedigree. Stuart has been involved in Blackburn Hockey for many years and has become a part of the heart and soul of the team. He is a fan favorite who always brings his all to every game and is one of the best team players around on and off the ice.
“When I came to Blackburn Last season and met Stuey for the first time I though he was a bit of character. He’s a great guy on and off the ice which makes him a good person to have around. He always gives the team a 100% effort on the ice and this is why signing him was such an easy decision. I’m really looking forward to having Stuey back on the ice with us and seeing him and BT (Stephen Fone) push each other.”
“As I got the phone call from Dunc’s about returning it was a ‘no brainer’ for me. I love playing for this club and it’s where I want to be. The fans of this club are second to non in this league which makes it an easy decision to return.
I’m looking forward to getting back on the ice for pre-season. with there being a new league format this year the league is likely to be a tight one, but with a few more additions I think we can push on from last season and have another strong finish .”
