Harrison will enter his third successive season with the Barons having also iced for Solihull in 2014-15. While focussing on his main role, pinching down opposition forwards and keeping the Barons end safe, Harrison also makes a useful contribution on the scoreline with a career best 14 points including 6 goals last season.

For the Barons, player-coach Dangie Brittle was pleased to see a key part of his defensive team return :

“ I am delighted to welcome Nugget back, a key member of the defensive team, he has grit and desire in abundance and in my opinion would walk on to any team in the league, with another year’s experience I look forward to him being even better! “

Stay tuned for more announcements as we have them.

Eley joins coaching team

The TC Cars Solihull Barons can announce that fan favourite Rob Eley is to return to the Barons with a position on the coaching team for the 2019-20 season.

For most Barons fans Rob Eley needs no introduction. As a big man on the forward lines Rob played nine seasons for the Barons (plus 5 more in Solihull Blaze / Kings guise), captaining the side for three seasons before retiring from play at the end of the 2015-16 season. The only Baron to have his number retired – 19 – Rob found the net for Solihull over 120 times.

Player coach Daniel Brittle was delighted at being able to bring the Big E back into the Barons fold :

“I’m excited to welcome him back, a great presence in the dressing room and a well respected member of the Barons – he has a lot to offer and a lot people will learn from.”

 

Phil Mulcahy looking forward to his return to Hobs Moat

After a year away, the announcement of the return of Phil Mulcahy to the Solihull forward lines after a year away will be welcomed by many of the Barons faithful. Mulcahy is similarly excited to be pulling on a red and white shirt once more and getting to know the fans and his team mates again.

I’m excited to return to Solihull as the fans were always so welcoming and always got behind the team. I’m also excited to play with some of the lads I’ve had great time with in the past.”

Phil won’t be the only Mulcahy on the Barons teamsheet when the season starts in September. After a season on a two-way contract with the NL Blaze, Phil’s younger brother Daniel emerged as a promising prospect and will be with the Barons full time come September. So how does Phil think it will work with his brother on the team ?

I’ve only played a handful of competitive games with my brother before but we seem to know exactly where each other is on the ice. He’s a very clever player and I think we make each other better so I’m excited to see how it works in this league.”

With the new league structure bringing the division onto a much more even footing, a very open season is on the cards with at least half the teams likely to feel they have a chance of the title. Phil is certainly in no doubt that the Barons will be in the mix.

“I’m happy to see a lot of the core players are still going to be playing at Hobs Moat Road this season and I think with the addition of some new players we can have a great season. With Dangie as coach I know it’s going to be an exciting style of play for the fans. I definitely see us challenging for silverware this year!
