SWINDON Wildcats’ Floyd Taylor says he is aiming to improve ahead of the new National League South One campaign.

The 22-year-old centre iced 46 times last season, tallying 13 points in total and was voted the most improved player at the club’s end of season awards.

With that in mind, Taylor is looking to go one step further in the coming season.

“The first (pre-season) games were good, I thought the boys played well, it’s always good to get the legs going again and be with everyone,” he said.

“Last year I was impressed with myself and I won the most improved player award, I just want to keep on improving and better my game.

“I want to prove myself more as a player and keep going how I am really.”

With a host of summer arrivals at the Link Centre, Taylor claims he now has more to learn as he gets to work with his new teammate.

As well as talking to player-coach Aaron Nell on areas of his game to work on, the 22-year-old says there is a whole host of talent in the roster which will benefit him.

“Aaron and I speak quite a lot and he is going to help me on the ice,” he said. “I just need to get my shot off quicker, and other little things. I’m looking to learn off of everyone and pick everyone’s brains to improve my game.

“I think Sam Zajac is a very good player, even though he is a different position to me, he has a real good attitude.

“The way he is on the ice and off of the ice is good to watch and I want to learn from him and his enthusiasm.

“He has been around the game a long time. You can’t just pick one person because everyone is different in their own way.” Given the re-shuffle in the league structure for the season, the Wildcats man thinks now is a good a chance as any for the club to claim some much desired silverware.

“I’d like to see us win some silverware, I have played in Swindon for a while now and every year we do well but unfortunately we never win anything,” he added. “I think this year, with the league changing and our team staying strong, we have a really good chance and everyone is mentally driven to win something this year.

Chris Jones, Toms Rutkis, Jan Kostal and Nell scored in Cats’ 7-4 defeat in their final pre-season match at Peterborough on Sunday.
