We are pleased to announce our latest addition to the Nottingham Lions, Elliot Cox. The home-grown talent is set to thrill crowds during the 2015/16 season.
Cox is set to strengthen The Lion's defensive game. With experience at the Nottingham Jaguars, Cox has risen through the ranks. This season will give his much needed opportunity as he makes his step up from recreational Hockey.
Speaking of the signing, Matt Bradbury, Sports Development Officer at the Nottingham Lions said:
“A new guy with an opportunity and a lot to learn, but most important I believe he's got a lot to give.”
“No doubt he's got great individual skill and it's the coaching staff's job to get the best out of him and we can offer him that structure he's been after.”
“Elliot's in good shape and what we are expecting from him is a huge passion for the sport, commitment and graft.”
“It will be interesting how he handles it all with the pressures of making the step up from rec hockey. He will be raw but when he gets the opportunity I’m sure he'll be chomping at the bit to take it and prove any doubters wrong.”
