#16 Lewis Houston
The Solway Sharks are delighted to confirm the return of Great Britain international forward Lewis Houston for the 2019/20 season.
Lewis is a GB U18s international as well as representing Scotland U19’s and conference team across the age groups and the speedy, skilled forward is a very welcome returnee to the roster as we prepare for the NIHL North and SNL season.
The 18 year old Dumfries born forward put up impressive numbers last season with 68 points from just 12 U20 games and also contributed 9 goals and 14 assists in the NIHL as he put in some impressive performance.
Head Coach Martin Grubb commented “Lewis is a big talent and he has bags of speed, Skill and energy that he is a nightmare for opposing teams defence. He loves to use his speed and get in on the forecheck and into the dirty areas but also has lots of skill and has the ability to put up big numbers for us this year. He always works hard, wants to improve and is popular in the dressing room. He had opportunities to move this summer which doesn’t surprise me but we are happy that he is back with us and I look forward to continuing to help him improve and progress”.
Houston stated “I am excited for another year with the sharks and excited to compete in both the SNL and NIHL. I am looking forward to learning and improving throughout the year and hopefully helping the team compete for trophies”.
Lewis Houston will wear the number 16 this season and is the latest addition to a fast, skilled and hungry group of forwards
