Three Youngsters return for 2019/20

Iwan Davies, Elliott Murdoch and Morgan Evans return to the Cardiff Fire line up for the 2019/20 season. 

All three players have come through the Cardiff junior system and will all start their 3rd consecutive season with Cardiff Fire. Iwan 20, Morgan 19 and Elliott 21 will all be eligible to play games in both the Fire first team and the development team due to them being under 23 years old. 

Mark Cuddihy Continued “All 3 guys are key to the future of our club and have really developed since playing senior hockey. Iwan has worked really hard this summer, he has one of the hardest shots in the team and knows where the net is. He showed how much he’s developed last season by playing both forward and defence and managed 6 goals. You can see the work he’s put in this summer and I believe he’s going to have his best season for us so far. He’s on the ice pretty much every day and it’s really starting to show.

Morgan is quick with good energy and also had a good season last term. He’s always put up decent numbers in juniors and finished his last season of Under 18’s as the leading scorer with 38 points in just 11 games while also stepping up to play senior hockey in NIHL 1 and 2. Last season was his first as a full time senior player and you can see his confidence growing. Morgan was also voted young player of the year for us last season. 

Elliott is the oldest of the 3 and is a big character in our dressing room, another player with decent speed, energy and toughness. He’s the kind of player that can slot in on any line and play in multiple roles for the team. He also sticks up for himself and his team mates when needed. I am expecting Elliott to kick onto another level this season as he really grows into senior hockey” 

Elliott will be sponsored by Sammy’s Barbers of Newport for the 2019/20 season and we thank them for their support of Elliott for the forthcoming season.
