Whitley youngsters Callum Queenan and Kyle Hindmarsh-Ross will both be part of the Warriors’ senior squad next term. The duo also played U18 hockey last season and will continue to do so this year as they look to continue their development.

In Laidler D2, Solihull Barons have announced two new signings with Tom Soar and Dan Harrison moving to Hobs Moat Road. Soar switches from the EPL’s Peterborough Phantoms, while Harrison iced for Telford last season in the EPL with the Tigers and NIHLN for the Titans.

London Raiders have made their first signings of the summer, with Frankie Harvey and David Oliver both agreeing another year. Defenseman Niall Bound has returned to Wightlink Raiders after a spell away from the game.
