Blackburn Hawks Golf Day – Player Announcement

Reece Cairney-witter – Blackburn Hawks – 2012 – 2017

What did Reece bring to the club?

Reece came to the Hawks as a young hard hitting defenceman & he still plays in that vein (with added experience these days). He arrived at the club just 17 years of age but with a reputation of being a solid figure on the ice (we call him the mammal). Reece is a player that would always fight his battles and would always answer the bell for not only himself but his team mates. He’s a player that is not afraid to get in the way of the puck, something that goes a long way with the boys, defensively solid and someone that you would always want on your team, but never want to play against. He has true passion, both on and off the ice & truly optimises the words “team mate”.

My favourite moment of Reece in a Hawks shirt?

My favourite moment of Reece is seeing how much passion and fight he brought to the ice week in week out. He has the heart of a giant and would do what it takes to help the boys out. Not only that but he really is a team first guy & the second year we won the league in 15/16 Reece set the tone every night. As we like to say at the club. “No backward steps”.

What do I think Reece will be like as a golfer?

Powerful – and with a voice you’d be able to hear throughout the course. He’s always ready to have a good laugh and would be a serious contender in the competition for longest drive. Again as previously stated with all the lads so far Reece will be great fun to play with & you’d be in stitches with all his stories.

ADDED EXTRA
None other than Bobby Streetly will be accompanying Reece as his caddy. It was unfortunate when we learned of Bobby’s shoulder injury ruling him out of playing, but it’s great to have him involved on the day still.

Glenn Young 2006-2007

What did Glenn bring to the club?

A name a lot of hawks fans probably won’t recognise, but Glenn was a shrewd signing back in 2006 for the Hawks from the then Hull Stingrays. He came in with big size, toughness, a blue helmet and an eye for goal. Something we were missing at that time. Having played rep level with Glenn & Bobby Haig as coach I knew that we were getting an elite level player. He proved to be a great signing by Bob.

My favourite memory of Glenn in a Hawks shirt?

Well I remember Glenn being very strong on the puck and always up for those personal battles. Having played against him for a lot of years I knew how competitive he was, and when he joined the Hawks he was no different. He could pick the spots and was a real handful in front of the net. I remember him scoring a goal and having a great fight against the old Newcastle Vipers side, that really set the tone for a win. Also that blue helmet that you could see from all over the ice.

What do I think Glenn will be like as a golfer?

Well as a Yorkshire man we will have to keep our eyes on him, he’ll be overwhelmed with the scenery of the red rose countryside so hopefully that will make him play well. In all seriousness I know Glenn plays quite often so again I predict him to be another dark horse that will post a low score, and no doubt will have many stories from all his hockey career not just his year he had with us.

We are delighted to have the Midland Cups set and both clubs will be fantastic hosts for the occasion. Solihull have had a great season, winning against the league leaders and sitting in third place in the league. Blackburn have come good in recent weeks and played very well on both nights last week to defeat Sutton Sting in their semi final. The management group are looking forward to the Final next month kicking off the run-in to the end of the season. We wish both teams well and hope the clubs and their supporters have a weekend to remember.”

Blackburn Hawks Head Coach James Neil said “I’m delighted we have made it through to the cup final, it’s nothing more than we deserve, especially after the huge improvement we have shown over the last few weeks. The lads have been working extremely hard and we are starting to get our rewards. There’s nothing better than competing for silverware so I’ll be preparing the team to give it our best shot over the two games! Thank you all for your fantastic support so far this season.”
