Sharks sign Belfast boy

The Solway Sharks sponsored by Building Craftsmen Dumfries are pleased to announce the return of Belfast based forward Adam Robinson for the 2018/19 season.

The 21 year old forward iced 8 times with the Belfast Giants last year and has gained valuable experience as part of their squad and training every day with them. He was meant to be part of a 2-way deal last year but education commitments meant that it was difficult but Adam returns ready to kickstart his Sharks Career.

Adam is a product of the Belfast Junior Giants and has also played in the GMHL with Meaford Knights and will be looking to continue his development and gain valuable game time and help the Sharks achieve success this coming season.

On signing Adam, Head Coach Martin Grubb remarked “We would like to welcome back Adam Robinson for the 2018/19 season and look forward to him being able to combine his hockey between here and Belfast.

“It was difficult last season with work and study but the training he gained with the Giants has helped him and he was determined to come back and gain more valuable game time as he wants to keep improving with ourselves and also the Giants.

“Adam works hard and is willing to play in the dirty areas and will help this team in any way he can and that is a quality that will help us as we aim to keep improving and I look forward to working with him again”.

Adam Robinson Commented “Solway has always been a club that I have been attached to, I feel that my game is at a stage where game time is precious.

“Martin has a great reputation of developing young players and pushing then to the best they can be.

“After skating with the guys this weekend I know we will be challenging for a top seeded position. We have huge depth and everyone is on the same page with regards to trophies”.

Adam Robinson’s #17 jersey is available on the owned and loaned scheme, priced at just £100 per shirt. If you are interested in this or any sponsorship options then contact rab.murray@solwaysharksihc.co.uk.
