JAMES Galazzi this week re-signed to complete the Bracknell Bees roster for the new season, writes Dave Wright.

The 34-year-old Canadian-born forward has played continually for the club since 2010 after stepping up from the Hornets.

With more than 360 EPIHL appearances behind him, his experience will again prove invaluable to Doug Sheppard’s new-look squad.

The Bees have also unveiled a new logo and shirts. There will be three jerseys, a traditional white one which will be worn at home for half the league games, and a black jersey for the other half.

However, they will take to the ice in gold tops for cup and play-off games.

Former skipper Matt Foord, who was recently released by Bees, has joined league rivals Invicta Dynamos.

Dynamos head coach Kevin Parrish said: “Matt is a seasoned professional with more than 20 years of hockey both at this level and above behind him, and I’m delighted to be bringing that much experience to the team.

“He has played both in defence and as a forward, has managed points wherever he has been and, perhaps most importantly, he is a true leader both on and off the ice and a fantastic example to the younger players on the roster.”

Foord said: “I think with the roster Kevin is putting together we have the parts in place to surprise a few teams. I’m excited to see what we can do when the season begins.

“It looks like we’re going to have a hard-working side that will be difficult to play against.

“With the great support the team get, Gillingham will be a tough place for teams to visit and, if we can find some away form, we can definitely be successful.”
