NIHL South round-up: Chamberlain boosts Dynamos’ forward options

Invicta Dynamos have added to their firepower with signing of former Elite League and EPL forward Bobby Chamberlain.

The 22-year-old iced for Hull Stingrays in Britain’s top flight, before successful spells in the second tier with Manchester Phoenix and MK Lightning.

Chamberlain said: “Having spoken to Kevin Parrish for the last few weeks I really liked what he was looking to do with the club next season and I knew I wanted to be a part of it.

“I’ll be looking to bring a bit of leadership as I pride myself on being one of the voices in the changing room. I’ll add a physical edge, but also look to contribute by doing my share of putting the puck in the net.

“I’ve always enjoyed playing in the big games and I’m looking forward to doing that in a Mos jersey. I’m really excited for the new challenge and I’m more motivated than ever for the new start.”

Peterborough Phantoms have secured the services of another former Lightning player Leigh Jamieson.

The 31-year-old has also spent time in the EIHL with Belfast Giants and Coventry Blaze.

Jamieson said: “I’m really excited and looking forward to taking on a new challenge next season – Phantoms is a great club with great history.

“After speaking with Slava (Koulikov) I knew Peterborough was the right club for me to sign for. He’s putting a great team together that will be competing for trophies and that’s one of the reasons that made my decision to sign easy.

“I’m hoping I can bring some fresh blood to the team as well as experience and help the team be successful. I can’t wait for the season to get started.”

Bracknell Bees have confirmed defender Jan Bendik has returned to the club after a season in Germany.

Shaun Thompson has agreed another year with the Bees, while young forward Josh Martin has also been added to the roster.

Neil Liddiard and Ben Nethersell return for another year with Swindon WIldcats and Luc Johnson has signed on a two-way deal from Lightning.

D2 outfit Slough Jets have appointed Lukas Smital as their new Player/Coach.

Mike Whillock and Dax Hedges have agreed another year with Oxford City Stars, while Warren Jones joins the club from Basingstoke Buffalo.

Haringey Huskies have added Stuart Appleby and Stephen Woodford to their squad.
