SWINDON Wildcats player-coach Aaron Nell says life is good at the Link Centre as he continues to piece next season’s roster together.

Defenceman Ben Nethersell became the latest player to put pen to paper, after Nell renewed the 20-year-old’s services for another year.

The Wildcats have made a total of eight signings for next year’s team but with plenty of spot in the roster to fill, including two imports, Nell says there is still plenty of signing news to come out of the club.

“There are more announcements to be made this month,” said Nell.

“We are getting close, there are a few more irons in the fire but we are happy with where we are.

“Hopefully we will have a good team and we will be a team who are going to be good to watch.

“The plan is to have a similar season to the one that we had last season, we want to be at the top and challenge for trophies.

“It will be a tougher year than last season but we are going to give it a good shot.”

Elsewhere, the governing body for the sport in this country - English Ice Hockey Association - will go to a vote on July 1 to decide on a management shake-up.

The current proposal is that instead of individual governing bodies, there should be one umbrella association, which looks at the sport across the United Kingdom.

This will be the main vote from their meeting early next month, scheduled for July 1.
