The Building Craftsman (Dumfries) Ltd. Solway Sharks are delighted to be able to bring 20 year old award winning goalie, Calum Hepburn back to the club for the 2017-18 season.

Head coach Martin Grubb commented “I am delighted to be able to bring Cal back for next season as he was a massive part of what we achieved last year. He came in and was solid and very consistent and gave us confidence and a chance to win every night. I felt he grew into one of the best goalies in the league last year and he will only improve as he is still young and hungry to develop. I expect Cal to keep pushing himself to get better and I want him to prove he can be a starting goalie in this new league structure and I have no doubt he will do a great job for us”.

Calum said “I am happy to be back for another season and want to improve on what I achieved last season. I felt that I did well last year and it is important that both myself and the team maintain that consistency and desire to win for the season ahead. I know I will need to prove I am the number one guy but I am confident in my ability. I would like to thank Paisley Pirates for their support last season with the two- way and can’t wait to get this season started”.

Calum will wear #30 and is the first name added to this seasons roster as the Sharks start to build for the campaign ahead.
