Chris Jones Joins The Wildcats

 

Swindon Wildcats are thrilled to announce the completion of the 2017/2018 roster with the arrival of Chris Jones.

The 26-year-old forward who has spent the last four seasons in the EIHL with the Cardiff Devils will be returning for his second spell in Swindon after icing in 32 games during the 12/13 season. Chris is returning to Swindon after winning a hat-trick of trophies with the Devils by winning the League, Conference and Challenge Cup last season.

Speaking about his return to Swindon Player Coach Aaron Nell said:

“I’ve talked to Chris a lot this summer and we have finally got the deal done. We were looking to sign one more forward, we just didn’t know when that would be. It’s come around very quick and we are delighted he’s here.

He plays with a lot of speed and in a perfect world I was looking for a right-handed shot, Chris fits that. He’s going to add an awful lot to the Wildcats, his team had a good season last year in Cardiff winning the league, conference and cup. He’s hungry to be successful again and he’s going to be a perfect fit for our line-up.

Chris is going to be relied upon a lot to be one of our top players. He’s been in Cardiff for 3 or 4 years and he’s improved a lot and he’s hungry to have a big year and improve again. I think having that right-handed player will be important to us and he gives me the flexibility to play him in the middle or on the wing, I think he rounds of the roster really well.

He knows what we’re about, but things have changed since he was last here. With the two-way contracts, we have and especially with Nottingham having first say on Jordan, I think Chris will be a big part of our team.
