Haslam and Price back for 17/18

Welshman Haslam and Swindon native price will back in Fire colours for the 2017/18 season. Both were part of the Fire team that won the league last season.

Josh Haslam has played all his hockey career in Cardiff coming through the junior ranks right through to both NIHL 2 and 1. Josh made his senior debut with Cardiff as a 16 year old and has been ever present since.  At only 22 Josh has played in 197 games Scoring 63 goals with 46 assists.

Jackson Price joined Cardiff Fire last season from the Swindon Wildcats and has been a favourite among his team mates. Known for his high energy work rate giving 100% every shift. Last season was the first time Jackson had played outside of Swindon. Jackson played right through the Swindon junior programme andmade his senior debut in 2014. Jackson had his best season to date last year scoring a point a game for the Fire helping the club to win the league for a second season in a row.

 

Mark Cuddihy added “I’m really glad to bring both of these players back for another season. It’s going to be a big jump up in standard and both players are young enough and hungry enough to learn and take everything on board.

Both Jackson and Josh offer high energy and speed and we need that in this league. Both can also play as either a centre or wing and have good hockey brains. Ive coached Josh for 10 years now and I know there is more to come from him, a lot more.I think this league will bring that out of him. He’s played many seasons in the old NIHL 1 and that will stand him in good stead for this season.  Jackson joined us last season and was an instant success, the guys love him because he works hard for the team, coaches for that same reason.  He doesn’t stop skating and was great on our penalty kill last season”

Welcome back Josh and Jackson
