Bracknell Bees have added netminder Matthew Smital to their roster for the 2016/17 EPL season.
A product of the club’s junior system, the 17-year-old was part of the Bees’ squad last term and it is hoped he will carry on his progression this year.
Bees’ boss Lukas Smital said: “Matthew came in full-time for the Bees part way through last campaign and was part of the squad for 25 games, icing in three of those matches.
“He had however been training with us prior to that, so is well known to the squad and has struck up an understanding with Alex Mettam.
“With Mettam having also returned to the squad for the forthcoming season, Matthew will continue to learn and develop and we have already seen that he is a capable netminder at this level.”
