Your Greenlite Group Blackburn Hawks are delighted to announce that Team GB defenceman Paul Swindlehurst will be joining our roster for tomorrow’s NIHL North Cup deciding clash against the Widnes Wild.

Co-Owner Carl Everitt shared his view on Paul joining the Hawks:

‘We’re delighted to be able to support Paul Swindlehurst with ice time prior to the Elite Series starting for our upcoming game against Widnes. As most people know, Paul is a very talented elite league and GB player, who trained with the Hawks in the Autumn last year and therefore knows most of the players, making his integration into the team a easy one. I have hoped to get Paul in a Hawks Jersey for some time, and it’s great to have the opportunity. Paul has a very good character and he’s great to have around the squad, both on and off the ice, helping us raise the standard and allowing our regular players to work alongside an elite standard.

Bringing Paul in wouldn’t be possible without the support of Paul’s Player Sponsor – Igloos & Bathrooms. I wish to also give huge thanks to IHUK, Adam Keefe at Belfast Giants, Danny Stewart at Coventry Blaze and Ryan Finnerty (Hawks Head of Coaching) for their support in facilitating Paul to play. ‘

Watch out on our social media platforms for more from Paul, and how you can be the proud sponsor of a #32 SWINDLEHURST shirt!
