Blackburn Hawks Management and Coaching team would like to announce the return of Matt Viney from Telford for the 2017/2018 season.
Matt has played for Blackburn Hawks since 2009 until 2016. Last year he decided to have a season playing for Telford Tigers. Last season Matt accumulated 32 points from 27 games which is just over a point per game. Matt is a solid Player who gives his all every game and is the type of player who creates chances off the puck. We are happy Matt is back with the club and we can’t wait top see him back in a Hawks shirt.
“Delighted to be signing Matt back to Blackburn this season. I’ve heard nothing but good things about him from players and coaches. For me he was one of the ones that stuck out when we played Telford last season, and looking at his stats you can see why. I’m really looking forward to working with Matt and seeing what he can bring to the team throughout the season.”
“I’m Looking forward to returning to Blackburn for my 8th season after a year away. It sounds like the club is really moving forward which made it an easy choice to return. The league will be tough this year with all the new additions but I’m confident we will be competing for silverware with the team Dunc’s is building. The Hawks fans are the best I’ve played in front of and can’t wait to get going again. ”
