Widnes Wild are delighted to announce the return of 20 year old, Tom Jackson.
Tom, from Glossop, will be heading into his 3rd season with the Wild. After playing hockey for 12 years he says he is thrilled to be continuing his career with us.
Tom had this to say about the news;
‘I’m excited to be back for my 3rd season with Widnes. There is such a great atmosphere within the team at the minute and I can’t wait to get the season underway.’
‘Being a D-man I think I can bring a lot to the team, being there to support my line mates is the main thing.’
‘I’m looking forward to our pre-season friendlies. These are going to be a real challenge for the team but we will be looking to battle through them under the instruction of the head coach, Scott McKenzie.’
‘Our main aim as a club is to be the league leaders, we have a fantastic amount of support from all the Wild Ones and we’re looking for them to continue with that support that will help us focus more.’
Tom had this message for the fans;
‘Thank you so much for the support over the last 2 years. I hope myself and the team can give you something back this year by bringing home the title. Keep up the brilliant support.’
Head coach, Scott McKenzie, had this to say;
‘Tom is a really strong D-man that is young and willing to learn. I’m looking for him to listen and really buy into what I’m asking of him and work hard for the Wild this season.’
‘We have one more D-man to announce which will give us more size. I think our D core will be a really tough group to play against. We will be organised and hard to break down.’
