Crowey returns to the Barons blue line

We are delighted to announce the bolstering of the TC Cars Solihull Barons blue line with popular d-man Richard Crowe. An ever present part of the Barons set-up over the last decade, Crowe’s safe play in his own end coupled to a booming shot from the point has ensured the number 3 has been an increasingly important and dependable part of the Solihull set-up.

While it would have been a shock had Crowey signed elsewhere he is delighted to be back for another season at Hobs Moat :

“Hello everyone.

“Hope everyone is doing well in the current times and staying safe.

“I’m sure you are all excited to see some hockey back at Hob’s moat road just as much as I am to get back to playing.

“This season is going to be an exciting season and one that you will not want to miss. Hearing the news of bowls taking over as head coach was exciting so getting the call from him to resign for next season was big news for me. Callum is experienced and passionate and I’m sure we can do big things under him.

“Would like to say a massive Thank-you to Dangie for everything he’s been through with us for the past few years. I have picked up a lot of knowledge under his coaching that has made me a better player and I can’t thank him enough.

”I’m excited to be back with the Barons for another season and excited to see you all back at Hob’s moat road.

“Take care and stay safe.

“Crowey

Rich Crowe (S Crampton)

For Callum Bowley bringing back Richard was a no-brainer :

”I’m chuffed to welcome back Crowey for another season. He’s a player that turns up week in, week out and puts his body on the line. He loves the Barons and quietly goes about his business, but for me personally, I was really impressed by the way he grew in confidence towards the back end of last season and solidified his place as key player in our defence lineup. He’s calm on the puck, possesses a good release and think he’s certainly capable of adding more of an offensive threat to his game. I’m expecting him to continue where he left off and hit the ground running. Welcome back Crowey!

More announcements to follow soon !

Harrison to pull on a Barons shirt once more

The TC Cars Solihull Barons continue to add to their 2020-21 roster with the return of key D-man Daniel Harrison. Injury early on last season meant Harrison missed much of the year and was only just getting back up to speed when the season ended prematurely. Keen to make up for the lost time ‘Nugget’ is excited to return for Solihull.

“Hello Barons fans!

“Hope that everyone has stayed safe over the last few months.

“I’m happy to be asked to come back to the barons there’s always a great atmosphere in the dressing room and around the rink. Its going to be an exciting season to be part of with the recent changes.

“I’m looking forward to getting back on the ice after missing most of last season due to an injury. I believe that we have a quailty team and will be able to  complete for some silverware.

“Continue to stay safe and see you all soon!

Similarly excited to see the return of the dependable defenceman was Barons coach Callum Bowley :

“I’m sure everyone is delighted as much as I am to welcome back Nugs. Unfortunately for him last season, he picked up a really bad injury and missed a lot of hockey, but this upcoming season, I know he’s excited to get going again and be a leader for us in defence. He turns up every game prepared to battle, plays the body very well and is a very reliable player. Not only is he gritty, he also is capable of playing special teams and shutting down opposition forwards, so I’m really pleased to have him back on board.

We are sure all Barons fans will be delighted to see Daniel back on the blue line ! Stay tuned over the next few weeks as we continue to announce the 2020-21 Barons squad.

 

Soarsey set to snipe once more for the Barons

The TC Cars Solihull Barons continue to prepare for the resumption of hockey with the signing of key forward and fan favourite Tom Soar.

Always at the top of the goals scored column, Soarsey is arguably one of the finest finishers in the league with an eye for net which can be difficult to counter.

For Soar, this will be his sixth season in a Barons jersey and he was delighted to be able to ink the deal :

“Hi Guys,

“Hope you’re all keeping well and staying positive during what must be the longest hockey break we’ve ever experienced!

“I think we’re all itching to go and I’m extremely excited to get the campaign under way, whenever that may be.

“When Bowlsey gave me the call, it was a no brainer to return for another year. We’re aiming for nothing less than last years success and to challenge for that league title.

“Special mention to Dangie, thank you for the past few seasons and I wish you all the best for the future. Thank you for kickstarting my stand up comedy career at the 2018 presentation evening.

“Stay safe and I look forward to seeing you all in the not too distant future!

“Soarsey

Two goals for Tom Soar (S Crampton)

For coach Callum Bowley having top end sniper Soar back was always going to be key ?

“It’s fantastic to welcome Soarsy back for the upcoming season. He’s a huge character, a fan favourite and a well respected player across the league. I’ve known him for a long while and know exactly what he brings to our team. He possesses an incredible shot and knows his role very well. Last season he averaged over 2 points per game and led the team in scoring, I believe he’ll contribute a big part to our success moving forward.

We hope you like the signings so far and stay tuned for more over the next few weeks !!!
