SWINDON WILDCATS: Wildcats capture Loris
5:50am Friday 13th July 2012 in Sport
TEENAGE forward Loris Taylor is hoping another successful season with Swindon Wildcats will help fire him to further international honours.
The 18-year-old has become the latest player to commit himself to the Link Centre club for next season, and the Swindon Cougars graduate is hopeful another good campaign in the English Premier League and adding to his Great Britain Under 18 and 19 caps.
“I'm really excited to be playing for the Swindon Wildcats again this coming season as last year was a great experience,” he said.
“I'm hoping to be able to push on and earn the opportunity to contribute more points to the team and help lift us up the league table this year and a successful season would also help me get selected for Great Britain once again and I'm really looking forwards to the challenge."
Head coach Ryan Aldridge has been able to bring back 13 of his squad from last season for the next campaign, and believes Taylor is set to continue his impressive progress.
"Loris came on leaps and bounds last year and his hard work last summer paid off,” he said.
"He needs another year like last and like Bully (Sam Bullas) the competition within the team will bring that out of him.
"Loris showed he is not scared of the rough stuff at times and I think when he plays a little tougher, it will make more room on the ice.
"Loris has a serious amount of talent and this year needs to be the year for him to show it all."
