Lions Add Prospects Blore and Nichols
The Lee Valley Lions have added two more names to our 2019-20 roster, with teenage forwards Charlie Nichols and Lewis Blore signing on.
18-year old Charlie Nichols started his junior career at Romford, before moving to Lee Valley juniors when the Romford rink closed down. He spent two seasons with Lee Valley Under 14s, playing 32 games and scoring 12 points (three goals and nine assists).
He then moved on to Slough Under 15s, before playing two seasons for Chelmsford Under 18s. Charlie then spent last season at Romford Under 18s, scoring 23 points (12 goals, 11 assists) in 10 games.
Now he joins the Lions for his first senior season in the sport.
Welshman Lewis Blore, who has played junior hockey at both Oxford and Milton Keynes, will also be stepping up to play his first senior campaign this season.
He was an alternate captain at Milton Keynes Under 18s last season, scoring 27 points (13 goals, 14 assists) in 20 games. He was also a team-mate of fellow Lions newcomer Harry O’Brien.
