Bisnieks jumps at Barons Chance

The TC Cars Solihull Barons have swooped to bring on board a new face to Hobs Moat in the form of exciting, young forward Jēkabs Bisnieks. With a development background in his native Latvia, together with experience in the States, the 21 year old more recently played for the Coventry NIHL and U20 setups, emerging as top points scorer for both.

Bisnieks for his part is delighted with the deal :

“Coming back from a year in Latvia, I had couple options to choose from, but seeing the solid performance of last season, I leaned towards Barons. I have skated with most of the guys from the team, so I know how good of a level the players bring and what they are capable of. Knowing that I can join Mulcahy brothers again also helped my decision as we developed great chemistry at NIHL Coventry Blaze.

“I’m excited to join the team and eager to achieve even more this year.

While stability of rosters has been a hallmark of Barons teams for a number of years, the opportunity to sign a strong, young prospect was too good a chance to miss for Solihull coach Callum Bowley :

“I am delighted to bring Jēkabs to Solihull and have him in our lineup for next season. Offensively he’s very good and I think he’ll slot nicely into our team. He’s a highly skilled forward, skates well and is still a young lad so he’s only going to improve. Everyone I’ve spoke with about him has only had good things to say, which is important and shows the type of person he is. We have a very close knit team and already have a strong forward lineup, so to add a new face, I wanted to make sure he definitely ticks all the boxes, and he does that. It’s an exciting signing for the club and I think the fans will like what they see when he steps out on the ice.

Stay tuned for more news and signings soon !!!

Adams excited to be back in a Barons shirt

The TC Cars Solihull Barons are thrilled to announce the return of one of the most promising young d-men in the league in the form of Henry Adams.

The teenager joined the Solihull set-up midway through the past season and quickly established himself as a solid piece of the defensive set-up at Hobs Moat while also bagging a useful 11 points in the process.

With plenty ice time and a supportive environment, for Adams the return to Solihull is a logical step :

“I am delighted to be returning to the Barons for the 20-21 season, I feel I had a good season last year both on and off the ice with a great bunch of lads and want to continue that momentum into next year and hopefully win some silverware! Hope to see you all soon.

Callum Bowley was confident that Adams would continue to develop his game adding significant strength and options in the Barons defensive game :

“It’s great news to welcome Henry back. He was one of our top performers last season and took on a lot of responsibility for a young player. He is confident at shutting down top forwards, playing the body and making a good first pass to move us up ice with speed. He’s moves very well, has a good release, has improved his positional play and awareness of time and space when he’s on the puck. Next season will be a big one for him, I’m looking forward to helping him progress and see him go from strength to strength.

More players to be announced soon, maybe a new name to Solihull next !

Matt Maurice back with the Barons

The TC Cars Solihull Barons are excited to announce the return of power forward Matt Maurice for the 2020-21 season. The 22 year old has become a mainstay on the Barons forward lines over the last few years where his robust play and eye for goal has shown better than a point per game over the past season.

Matt was delighted to have inked the new deal and was looking forward to challenging for the title in the upcoming season.

‘Hello all,

‘I hope you’re all looking forward to the start of the new season, which hopefully will be soon! I’m excited to be coming back to the Barons for another year, especially with another great line up.

‘With Callum’s vision for the team this coming season, we are going to settle for nothing less than a new piece of silverware in the Barons trophy cabinet.

‘As a team we are more than ready to get back on the ice and play the sport we all love!

’Stay safe everyone!

Matt Maurice found the net four times (S Crampton)

For coach Callum Bowley bringing Matt back is all part of getting the correct mix on the Baron’s lines.

‘I’m pleased to welcome Matt back on board for next season, he’s a key player for us and always provides an offensive threat. He’s a strong kid, has a great attitude and work ethic, and finishes his hits which I like to see. When you have forwards on your team who are prepared to battle and finish there hits every time, you know you are going to get more opportunities to play with freedom and time on the puck. He’s a great team guy and someone I can see stepping it up another level next season.
