Head Coach Danny Hughes I am delighted Woji will be back with us for another year, he proved to be a solid d man last year with a lot of experience under his belt. He has great strength and can move the puck very well. I am looking forward to working with him again for another season.

Head Coach Hughes on his new signing;I am really pleased that Brad has agreed to come back to the Hornets for this coming season, Brad is a great utility player and it will be very handy to have this on the team next year, he will also bring a degree of toughness to the team and I know he will have no worries about sticking up for his team mates when needed.
The return of Peter Jasik and Tom Fisher
Hornets Head Coach Danny Hughes is pleased to announce the return of Peter Jasik and Tom Fisher for the 2013/14 season.
Peter stepped down from the Bracknell Bees last season to play for the Hornets and stay close to his home. In his inaugural year in NIHL Peter played in 31 games scoring 17 goals and picking up 23 assists. Before the Hornets Peter has plied trade in Europe playing in Slovakia, the Czech Republic, France, Finland and Hungary before settling in England where he played for both the Slough Jets and the Bees.
He played 222 games in the EPIHL scoring 130 goals and picking up 148 assist with 135 penalty minutes. Head Coach Hughes on his re-signing; I am Happy to say that Jazy has decided to stay with the hornets for another season. He brings a huge wealth of experience, grit and determination to the team where last year he was an inspirational player to our young forwards. He is a great forward with great hands and a very quick skater I am counting on him this year to put up a lot of points for the team. He has great attitude, is good to have in the locker room, and is a fans favourite and one of the nicest people you can meet on and off the ice.
Tom Fisher has been a regular with the Hornets since 2009 when he broke into the Hornets English National Ice Hockey League (ENIHL) squad at the age of 16. Fisher now 19 is a product of the junior development programme at Bracknell; last year he was given a two way contract with the Bracknell Bees making 7 appearances during the season. Over the last four seasons he has made 127 appearances for the Hornets scoring 23 goals and picking up 69 assists with 87 penalty minutes. Head Coach Hughes says; I have been speaking to Tom since the 2012/13 season finished and I am pleased to say he has agreed to return as a Hornet for next year’s campaign. Fish is a strong Centre and for his age reads the game very well. He has continued to come on immensely this year and has proved himself a regular spot on the team with the points he has put up. Fish was a big part of the Hornets last year and we are happy he has decided to stay and be part of the squad for the coming season
