Blackburn Hawks can confirm James Riddoch has signed for the 2024/25 season! Here is what Dom Osman had to say.

“Sometimes I just have to laugh when I hear this guys name. In all honesty Ridz is a guy that we are lucky to have. His domineer in the room is second to none. I feel he has improved both years and has played to the ability everyone knew he had. He’s a bit of a laid back guy and keeps it loose. I can also count on Ridz to step up and do or say what’s needed when it is. When Ridz is going the team seems to rise with him.

This year it will be important that he is going every night. I still don’t think we have seen his best just yet. We’ll be looking for him to continue to help put up the points needed but make sure he’s leading the right way when that isn’t going his way. Great to have him back for another year.”

A message from James to the fans!

“It’s great to be asked back for another season with the Hawks. After last seasons successes for the club it was a no brainer to return back for another season. I know that Oz is building a team that’s ready to push for more silverware this season. This club has come along way in the past couple years and I plan on elevating my game to keep up with the growing expectations of the club. Our fan support is the best in this league and I can’t wait to get back on the ice infront of them in September. #28”
