Dragons Snap Up Young Prospect

The Dragons are delighted to announce the signing of 17 year old Matt Barlow. Matt spent last year playing Under 18s and NIHL2 for Bradford Bulldogs and will remain affiliated with the Bulldogs for the coming season. Coach Mckenzie is delighted to have snapped up such a talented young player; ”Matt is a gifted young man. He skates well, shoots well, has a good hockey IQ and again, is willing to learn. I have really strong connections with Bradford ice hockey club and our main focus is to give young players like Matt an opportunity. I think this season could be a breakout year for Matt and I am glad he has chosen to do it in Dragons colours.’ Matt himself is thrilled to be given the opportunity to showcase his ability ‘I’m extremely excited to play for the Dragons this up coming season, it is a great opportunity to play a long side a great bunch of talented team mates and play in a higher league than last season. To be asked by Scott McKenzie to come and play for the Dragons next season was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down, I’m looking forward to playing with the Dragons.’
