Willâ€™s Got That Winning Feeling
ULTIMATE WINDOWS-sponsored Billingham Stars look to the future of the club again this week as defenseman Will Robson commits to another season representing the senior and Under-20s Stars.
19-year-old Robson is learning his trade fast as he continues to develop as a cool-headed blue liner. With two senior seasons now under his belt, Robson also played a vital role in helping the U20s take the North League title in what was a very busy campaign for the young Star.
Robson has targeted certain areas of his game for improvement as he goes for glory on both fronts once again:
“Winning the U20s League was definitely a highlight of last season, it is the first time I have won a league and to have done so only losing one game was quite an achievement. I feel this season will be a bit more difficult with the addition of a Whitley team and also Deeside joining –Â I think there will be more competition at the top of the table. I gained a lot of experience in the League especially with Ian [Weedall]Â as a coach –Â there is stillÂ a lot to learn from him on top of what I have already improved on this last season. My performance last season was quite good but I feel that I could improve my game by working on my fitness so I can keep up in the third period in important games. I’m making this my target for next season so that I can help the U20s team hopefully win the League again and for the senior Stars to make the playoffs.
The aspect of my game that I could work on is on the opposing blue line –Â some work on improving the accuracy of my shots and the power to try and get a few more goals for the team. My personal goal is to keep turning up and doing what is asked of me when I get my shift on the ice. The ambition for the team as a wholeÂ is to improve our consistency and hopefully get a few less injuries. I think with the new signings that have been made we can really be a force to be reckoned with this year, even though it is a shame to lose Munroe as he is a good defender who did a lot for the team.”
Will’s return brings the defence count to six as the Stars squad is fine-tuned. There is plenty of news still to come, particularly with fixtures due out any day, so keep checking all the usual outlets for the latest.
