Lee Pollitt – Blackburn Hawks – 2015 – Present
What does Lee bring to the club?
Lee was a great addition to the team and scored some vital goals in his first season with us, including a massive one in the playoff final that secured our position as the Double Double winners. He then went off to Canada for a year to play for Temiscaming Titans, however quickly rejoined us when he came back to England. Lee has brought heaps of skills, knowledge and passion to the team, and has become a strong staple in the makeup of the Blackburn Hawks. He’s a player that is not afraid to get in the way of the puck, defensively solid but has the skill and pace to make a quick break with most often than not becomes game-changing.
My favourite memory of Lee in a Hawks shirt?
My favourite moment with Lee is scoring the winning goals in the playoffs in 2016 – where we set each other up to win against Solihull. Although, the one thing that does stick in my mind is that he loves a TGI, making sure he gets a birthday cake every time, even if it’s not his birthday.
What do I think Lee will be like as a golfer?
Erm…. let’s see about that one! He’s already been asking how to play, and what the rules are… I still think he’ll give it his best go, but if all else fails, we might see the famous putter throw.
