CAPTAIN Rob Lamey and Lewis Turner have both re-signed for the Bracknell Bees for the 2012/13 season.
Lamey, who joined at the start of last season from Guildford Flames, is one of the English Premier Ice Hockey League's leading points scorers amongst active players with 443.
Turner, on the other hand, came into the first team squad from the Bracknell Hornets in December and impressed with a number of solid performances.
"Lewis has deservedly earned the opportunity to join the Bees on a permanent basis, having worked so hard over the last couple of seasons," said Bees head coach Gareth Cox.
"He grew in confidence and stature last season and he possesses a fantastic enthusiasm to just play the sport he loves.
"I'm so glad that Rob's back. He is a fantastic asset to the club and a true leader on and off the ice. He is a consummate professional and is fully committed to helping the improve its position this season."
Bees general manager Stuart Robinson added: "The permanent signings of Lewis and Alan Lack are a testament to our ongoing faith and commitment to developing players in Bracknell's superb junior programme."
"Gareth and Lukas Smital have told me that there will again be two or three of next season's Hornets squad, who they are keen to put on two-way contracts. For the sustainable future of our sport and this league, you have to look after and give hope of progression to your home talent and luckily we've got some great kids in the pipeline."
