NEW SEASON CAPTAINS ANNOUNCED!
Head Coach Matt Ginn officially informed the 23-24 season squad of the captains group for the year ahead. Forward and natural leader Cam Critchlow takes the ‘C’ for the second year running – a well deserved accolade following a successful 22-23 season. The clubs assistant captains consist of forwards Stephen Johnson and Michael Korol alongside defenceman Chase Harrison. The ‘A’s’ will help Captain Critchlow lead the squad through what promises to be a thrilling season ahead!
You will spot some familiar faces on this season’s roster, including some new alternate Captains. With Cameron Critchlow returning as the Captain, your alternate captains consist of forwards Stephen Johnson and Michael Korol, alongside defenceman Chase Harrison.
Former Storm defenceman Declan Balmer will return for some games, after signing a two-way contract with Hull Seahawks. British forward, Bobby Chamberlain also joins on a two-way contract with the Seahawks. Chamberlain helped Storm previously in 2018/19.
