Ryan Targets League Table Climb
Telford Tigers net minder Declan Ryan believes his shut-out against EPL leaders Basingstoke Bison will send an ominous message through the league.
The 21-year-old secured his third no-score game of the season on Sunday, turning away 35 shots against one of the highest-scoring sides in the EPL.
His performance earned Telford a 4-0 win over Basingstoke, following a similarly strong display in the 8-2Â victory over Slough on Sunday.
Ryan, who is now Telfordâ€™s longest-serving player, is looking forward to an extended run of success as the sideâ€™s new arrivals continue to bed in. He said: â€œThe win will definitely send a message to the rest of the league that all the guys are here together.
â€œIt will be good to see how well we can do over the next few months, and keep on pushing for the play-offs. The task now is to see how far we can climb the table.â€
The victory means Telford are now eighth in the EPL standings, with sixth-placed Slough now well within their sights.
