The Spartans are pleased to announce the addition of Martin Finkes to the defensive unit. Martin joins us from HC Valasske Mezirici in Czech 3, where he was on loan from LHK Jestřábi Prostějov also in the Czech 3 league.
Head coach Martin White had the following to say: “I’ve been in touch with Martin over the last month or so with a view to him joining us for the 2015/16 season. After seeing him skate on his first session with us it looks like we’ve acquired a solid D man with vision to pick a pass and who has a decent shot as well. He’s in good shape, looks calm in possession and will be a good asset to our defensive unit, which is stronger in depth than last season.
Martin will be able to train enough times to integrate himself fully into the Spartans setup before the season begins and has already been dubbed ‘fingers’ by the lads. We’re hoping Martins registration goes through in time to see him in action vs Billingham this weekend in our last pre-season friendly before our opening league fixtures against the Senators.”
Our first league games of the season are vs the Senators on 12th and 13th Sept at iceSheffield.
We are looking into a number of other new faces to join the team, we expect to announce 1 or 2 other new players to join before the season starts.
