Gosling, Gillingham Back for More

The Lee Valley Lions are pleased to announce the return of long serving defenceman James Gosling, and forward Ben Gillingham.

Former Invicta player James first joined the Lions in 2010-2011 and has now played 107 times for the team, scoring 25 points from the blue line.

Ben Gillingham returns for his second season in a green & white jersey after joining late in the 2015/16 campaign after coming through the Bracknell & Guildford junior set ups. As an Under 18 he was a teammate of fellow Lions Nick Alley & Matt Hepburn.

Coach George Alley had this to say about the signings.

“I’m glad to have Goose (Gosling) back this season as I know how reliable he is on D and that he will do anything for the team.”

“He’s also very popular with the other players so I’m happy we’ve added to the core of good people in the dressing room.”

“Ben is a very hard working forward who I know can contribute a lot more points this season.”

“I think getting a full season under his belt will be good for Ben and the team, he brings a lot of energy & effort which I know will rub off on the guys.”
