Furnival Upfront For Dragons

Dragons boss Lol Paul has bolstered his attacking options with the return of long-serving forward Simon Furnival.
The 30-year-old has been a Flintshire mainstay since 2010, averaging over a point per game at NIHL level.
Furnival will be part of a striking line-up that many expect be one of the most lethal in the Laidler Conference.
The capture of Filip Supa from Widnes – along with the return of James Parsons – has already whetted the appetite of Dragons fans.
And Paul expects Furnival’s arrival to heighten anticipation ahead of the new season. 
He said: “Simon is a guy who will run through walls for this club, but he is also a great attacking talent. His statistics show how much effort he puts into his game.
“The fact that he averages over a point per game makes Simon a great player at this level. He sticks up for his team-mates, and those qualities cannot be underestimated.
“Once again, he is another guy who will guide the team, both on and off the ice. He has the experience to do that, but he’ll also to listen to other players as well.
“I can’t wait for the new season to start and I know many of our fans feel the same. A lot of the players are familiar with each others’ styles, so we’ll be ready to go from the first game.”
Fixtures for the new campaign are due to be released within the next week, with Dragons games to be played on Saturday evenings.
Season ticket prices are also set to be announced – and Paul has called on fans to pack out the Chester Road venue.
He added: “Having Simon here is part of a jigsaw that we’re building for next season. The other guys coming here will also be an important piece of that.
“But another crucial element in that jigsaw is having a rink full of noisy, passionate fans. The guys in the stands have a role to play in what I hope will be a successful season.
“We can build a team to challenge for trophies, but with a rink full of supporters, we will be even tougher to beat. The Dragons will have some great local derbies, and loud fanbase can make all the difference.”
