Return of the King
Blackburn Hawks player-coach Jared Owen has continued to bolster his squad with the addition of returning Hawk Tom King.
Family commitments mean King has been re-signed only as injury cover, but Owen is delighted to be able to call on a player that not only knows the Hawks inside out, but is blessed with quality.
King made a name for himself during his first stint with the club, where his physical presence and goal-scoring abilities made him a firm fan favourite over three seasons.
King, however, will not be able to play in today’s trip to Scotland to take on table-topping Solway Sharks as he must serve a two-match suspension incurred when he was playing for Deeside Dragons last season.
The Hawks ran Sharks close earlier this season, going down to a 2-1 home defeat, having ended their incredible 34-game unbeaten last season on the way to winning the playoffs.
Owen said: â€œThey are a very good team but we have shown we are more than capable of playing them.
â€œIf we can win there it would really open up the league.
â€œItâ€™s exciting for the fans as it looks like this season anybody can beat anybody.â€
