Award-Winning Goalie Grout Gears up for New Season

The Lee Valley Lions have completed their goaltending tandem for the new season with the addition of Steve Grout, who returns to the club after two years away.

Grout first joined the club in 2011 following a number of years with the Invicta Mustangs, as well as spells at the Chelmsford Warriors and Invicta Dynamos. In his first season as a Lion in 2011-12, Grout played 17 games between the pipes with a goals against average of 5.05 – and was voted as the club’s Leading Goalie at the end-of-season awards.

Steve started the following season with the Lions before switching to the Romford Fury during the season, and then played the 2013-14 season with the Basingstoke Buffalo.

He returned to the Lions in 2014-15, and served as back-up to starting netminder James Tipple over the next two campaigns.

Steve has now signed up with the Lions for the new season, and will provide goaltending competition for James Andrew between the pipes.
