Swindon Wildcats’ defenseman Neil Liddiard has committed his future to the club after signing a new one-year contract.
The 37-year-old blueliner, who joined the club from Guildford Flames in 2015, recorded 56 appearances in a Wildcats jersey last season, making 16 assists – his highest points total for five years.
“I’m really happy and excited to be staying with the Wildcats – it’s a great, friendly and well run club to play for and has amazing supporters,” said Liddiard.
“I felt so gutted that our season was cut short last year with the effort we all put in.
“It felt like we deserved much more, so I’m looking forward to coming back and doing all I can to help the club achieve our goals of some much deserved silverware.”
Player/Coach Aaron Nell added: “I’m delighted that Neil is coming back for the new season – he’s a coach’s dream and a player that everyone in the roster looks up to.
“On the ice you know exactly what you’re going to get from Neil and he’s the type of person that I want in Swindon and the type that we can build our team around.”
