Sutton Sting are delighted to announce a new name to the roster for the 2018/19 season! Come September, Craig Elliott will be lacing up his boots and stepping on the ice wearing Sutton Sting's colours for the first time.
Craig brings a wealth of experience to what will be a young team, having iced for a number of years in the EPL for the Sheffield Steeldogs.
Having taken a break from hockey, Craig returned last season for the Sheffield Senators and put up some great numbers scoring 32 points in only 12 games. Head Coach Simon Butterworth was certainly impressed by what he saw, "We played against Craig and the Senators 3 times last season and every time i thought he was the best players on the ice, he skates very well, has lots of energy and is always making something happen. There was 1 player that I wanted to bring in from division 2 this summer and I am delighted we have managed to do that!"
On next season, Craig commented "I'm really happy to be playing for Sutton this season, I feel their ambition matches my own. After falling out of love with the game and taking some time off, it was nice to be back on the ice briefly last season. I am really looking forward to playing and testing myself again at this level. There are some really strong teams in this league which I feel we can compete with and hopefully pull off a few shocks."
Craig will be wearing #13 next season and his individual players sponsorship is available for £250, interested parties can get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
