Telford Tigers have announced the return of Joe Aston for the 2021/22 season.
Aston, who will return for his fifth season with the club, will wear the number 21 shirt and was part of the club’s double winning team scoring 11 points.
He said: “I’m very pleased to be back with the Tigers. It is such a great hockey family from the lads in the dressing room to the fans in the stands. After what was such a rewarding season for us in 2019/20, I cannot wait to put in the hard work to make it all happen again.”
Tom Watkins, head coach and general manager, added: “I’m pleased to have another returning player from our double winning team to the line up. He’s part of a strong group that interact very well together and stick together on the ice.
“He’s a local lad, who gives us options, he can play up and down the line up, he’s got good skating ability, can protect the puck down low and play a strong direct game. He’s a player who is still young, still improving, but what I like about Joe is that he is keen to keep improving, he wants to add different elements to his game and I really like that attitude.
“He has a big desire to keep getting better all the time. He puts the work in off the ice which shows in his conditioning and strength. Joe is a character guy in our team and I’m expecting that again this season.”
