#5 Kyle Horne
The Solway Sharks are delighted to welcome back Kirkcaldy born blueliner Kyle Horne for the 2019/20 season. Horne who is a product of Kirkcaldy ice hockey club has a vast amount of BNL and Elite experience with his hometown Fife Flyers as well as playing in the EPL, Czech Republic and representing GB at all levels. The 38 year old defenceman returns for his third season in Dumfries and experience and calming influence has been invaluable especially to the younger players and we look forward to having Kyle back on our blue line.
Head Coach Martin Grubb said “With the team going through a rebuild it was vital we were able to bring Kyle back. He reads the game so well, makes a great first pass and is always composed under pressure and these skills will be vital in helping our younger players. He loves the game, enjoys helping the young guys and is a winner and you can never have too many of these guys around. Kyle will play a huge part in helping shape the development of our young guys and I am delighted to have him back in a Sharks uniform”.
Horne commented “I have really enjoyed my time as a Shark so far and I still want to play so it was a no brainier for me to return. I have spoken with Martin and want to help be a part of the direction the club is going and help develop these younger players and help them make an impact for years to come. We are now competing in 2 different leagues and I want to be challenging for honours and look forward to helping this team do that”.
Kyle Horne will wear the number 5 jersey.
