Head Coach Simon Anderson said: “Olly is someone who I
have watched on a few occasions over the years. Looking at his resume, he is a

level and I think if you know where the net is you can do it at any level.

“Olly is also a big guy and has a gritty side to his
game as well, so I think he will thrive at NIHL1 level.

“It is a great opportunity for Olly to try a different club and league after being a loyal player for Bristol and I know he is as excited as we are to get going.”
