SOLIHULL Barons have welcomed back gritty forward Stephen Heape and dynamic goalie Josh Nicholls for another year at Hobs Moat.
For Heape this will be a fourth consecutive season with the Barons, after picking up two goals and three assists in the 2017/18 season.
His forte is, however, gritty play, whether it be in the corners, screening the goalie on the powerplay or where needed dropping the gloves.
For Nicholls, the 2018/19 campaign will be his sixth season in a Barons shirt.
Arguably at his best in high pressure situations, Nicholls poses a significant challenge to opposition forwards, particularly in penalty shot or goal mouth scrambles situations.
