The Islanders are delighted to announce that Dale Jowett, Clint Herring and Kenny Bavin are returning to the Islanders for the 2016/2017 season.
Dale made his first Islanders appearance in the 2007-08 season and has made over 200 appearances for the Islanders. Apart from a brief gap in 2008-09 when he was signed for the Phantoms as part of the treble winning side, this will be his 9th season with the Islanders. He has amassed 44 Goals and 71 assists so far including 9 Goals and 13 Assists last season and will look to build on that this season. Dale is great defensively and is the go to guy on the Penalty Kill, if you need to win an important faceoff or get something going then he is somebody you would turn to. Stevie is delighted Dale has chosen to re-signed for the coming season “Dale is one of the best role players in the league and does exactly what is asked of him, Dale, Clint and Kenny were crucial as a line to our success last year and scored some important goals and gelled extremely well.” Jowett is eager to build on last year’s efforts “It’s a pleasure to be signing again, we have a great bunch of guys on this team and I look forward to winning something this year.”
The Peterborough Dalrod Islanders are delighted to announce their coaching team for the 2016/17 season.
Stevie Johnson will be returning for his 3rd season with the Islanders and will be joined again by assistant coach Steve Wren. Shaun Yardley has also joined the Coaching team whilst continuing to play.
Coach Johnson is already looking forward to the season “It’s my 20th Year coaching in Peterborough and it is also the Islanders 20th Year. I am really forward to giving it another go and winning some silverware this season. The amount of effort Dave and Jo Lane put into the Islanders is amazing and I want to help them build on the success we have already had. We were so close to silverware last year being runners up in the League and Cup and losing on penalty shots in the semi-finals of the Playoffs and it would be great to go one better this season.” Johnson also added “We had 3 players progress to the next step of their careers in the EPL which is ultimately the Islanders goal, Islanders have a great bunch of guys and I am looking forward to another rollercoaster season.”
