Whitley Warriors have added Adam Reynolds to their squad ahead of the second half of the NIHL North Division 1 2015-16 campaign.

Reynolds left Warriors during the close season, but the experienced forward said he has missed hockey since and has therefore agreed to rejoin David Longstaff’s side.

He said: “Having watched the Warriors games this season it made me miss playing and my oldest son was bugging me to start playing again.

“I’m looking forward to working with Lobby [David Longstaff] and Dave Holland again.

“Hopefully I can contribute in some ways to continuing the great work the team has done so far this season. I feel I have a lot to give and want to get back to my best after a tough season from injury last year.”

Reynolds looks set to make his first appearance of the season next Sunday when Whitley travel to Blackburn Hawks in a crucial game between the top two sides in NIHL North.

Hawks and Warriors met each other on three occasions during December with each claiming a victory alongside a draw, making the upcoming fixture a vital match up for both organisations.

Warriors’ next home game is on Sunday, January 17, (face-off 5pm) when Telford Tigers travel to Hillheads for what should be an entertaining contest between two sides who both currently occupy championship play-off places.
