Berry is Back

The Lee Valley Lions are delighted to welcome back Joe Berry for the 2018-19 season, after two years away from the Den.

The combative 30-year-old forward has played 10 seasons in total for the Lions over two separate spells with the club; first from 2005 to 2009, and then from 2010 to 2016. He is one of only three players to spend 10 or more seasons at the Lions – the other two being club legend Eddie Joseph and current player-coach James Joseph.

After taking the 2016-17 season out of hockey, Joe returned to the sport last season with the Lions’ London rivals, the Haringey Huskies. Now he has returned to East London, becoming the Lions’ fourth new signing of the summer.

Berry has played 127 career league games in a Lions jersey, scoring 63 goals and assisting on a further 52 for a total of 115 points, while picking up 311 penalty minutes. These numbers put him in the club’s all-time top 20 lists for each of the above categories.
