GOALKEEPER Sam Hewitt has become the latest player to commit to the Solihull Barons, ahead of the 2019/20 Moralee League season.

Hewitt has become a key figure for the Hobs Moat side, and produced the goods once again during the 2018/19 campaign, facing almost 1,000 shots and maintaining a save percentage of around 86%.

Defenceman Daniel Harrison has also tied his future to the club, as he prepares to enter into his third successive season with the club.

He has made himself somewhat of a presence down both ends of the rink, scoring six goals and chipping in with 14 points last term – a career best for Harrison.

Player-coach Daniel Brittle admitted that he believes Harrison will continue to be a valuable member for the Barons.

“I am delighted to welcome him back, a key member of the defensive team,” he said.

“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.”

The club also welcome the Mulcahy brothers Daniel and Phil back to the Barons.

Daniel will join the club full-time, having shared playing duties between the Barons and Coventry Blaze’s under-20 side last season, and now hopes to fight for a starting place in the first team after recording his first goal and assist in the Moralee Division in 2018/19.

Phil returns after a year away at the Blaze, but hopes to impress when donning a Barons shirt once more, having chipped in with 28 points for the club in the 2017/18 season.

Brittle believes both brothers are capable of making an impact for Solihull.

“Dan is an exciting young player, he sees the game well and has an excellent hockey brain.

“He had a great season with us in the games that he played and I can see him going from strength to strength.”

“Phil is welcomed back with open arms, he was a big miss last year and is one of those players you just don’t enjoy playing against.

“He has a track record of getting points but more than that players who play with him, play better.”
