2016 is set to be another exciting year for the Cats. With the first of our British Championship games already looming, it’s time to introduce the new captain of the travel team, Dan(atello).
Dan has been with the WWCs since the very beginning of the league in 2009 and she is excited to step up to the challenge. “It’s an exciting and challenging year for the Cats, having lost a fair few veteran skaters at the end of last year. We are in the process of building a new team for the British Champs 2016 with Pie Mind…(intriguing!). We may be down a tier but we ended 2015 with a great win so I am very optimistic about our forthcoming games. I am extremely proud to be captain for the travel team this year.”
Dan steps into the skates of Bruise Buffer who captained the team in their British Championship debut last year. “Playing champs last year was a huge challenge for the team and we’ve had to adapt with long-term players retiring so I knew it wasn’t going to be an easy year. But I think we learnt so much and we were able to grow and develop as a team which I think will help in this year’s Champs. I’m more than confident Dan will do an amazing job and I’m looking forward to her taking over for this season’s Champs games.”
Joining Dan in the captaincy team is Lysette (Glory) who steps into the role of vice-captain.
