Matty Learning All The Time
BILLINGHAM STARS this evening announce the return of promising young defenseman Matthew Campbell, who will turn out for both the senior Stars and the newly-formed U20s side.
18-year-old Campbell certainly made his presence felt last season, with numerous eyecatching performances at the back plus that bomb of a slapshot that landed him four goals. Still learning his trade, ‘Meatball’ noticeably improved as the year progressed and will be a valuable member of the new U20 squad as well as the senior side. Details about the U20s side and League will follow once finalised.
Matty is keen to keep up his progress and is looking forward to his ‘dual role’ for the coming campaign:
“Last season was great for me with the amount of ice timeÂ I was given. I really enjoyed it as it tested me and made me realise which areasÂ I needed to improve. Decision-making was my main area that needed improving and hopefully that’s happened.
PersonallyÂ I am really excitedÂ about the U20s league. It gives players like me, Jack and Luke the opportunity to take what we’ve learned playing senior hockey through to next season with the U20s.
Next yearÂ I want to see a big improvement in my personal performance and hopefully become a real asset to the team.”
