Not Your Average Joe

Our last signing before tonight’s Shirt Launch and Meet The Players Event is former Altrincham Ace Joe Greaves.

Joe came up through the Manchester Phoenix junior ranks and started his senior career with the Trafford Metros in 2010. He then spent a couple of seasons playing for the Manchester Minotaurs before making the move to Altrincham Aces in 2015 where he has played until the call came from Head Coach James Neil for Joe to sign for the Hawks.

James Neil on Joe’s signing:

“Joe is a big strong powerful forward who has one of the hardest shots I’ve seen.  I believe Joe has a point to prove this season and I’m happy to give him the opportunity.  If I can get him to play in the way I want he will be a force in our league”.

If you would like to apply for Joe’s home and/or away jersey on the Blackburn Hawks 2019-2020 Own and Loan scheme please register your interest by sending an email to stating in the subject line: Joe Greaves (Home Match Jersey) or (Away Match Jersey).
