Filip, has previous experience of playing in the NIHL leagues with Widnes, Deeside and most recently with Chelmsford.
Tom Watkins, Telford Tigers General Manager and Head Coach said “I’m pleased to add Filip to our roster. Filip skated with us prior to Christmas and we discussed with him joining us at that point. Filip works hard and is in good condition. He has previously played for Scott at Deeside and I think he will be welcome addition to the team. I expect Filip to come into this team and compliment the other guys and be an honest hardworking guy.”
Tom continued “I think it’s important to stress that Filip is not a replacement for Joe Miller but an addition to the team we were planning to make to add depth to the current line-up. We are still looking for a full time replacement for Joe, we’ve made several offers to players over the last few weeks but we not been successful to date and we’re still on the lookout and will make an offer for the right person.”
