Fresh of a successful testimonial last weekend, the Bespoke Guardians Swindon Wildcats are delighted to announce that local defenceman, Stevie Whitfield has extended his stay with the club for another season.

Stevie has been a mainstay of the Wildcats senior roster since the 11-12 season and has played a crucial role in the successes the team have had in the last few seasons, most recently of course the Autumn Cup triumph last year.

The testimonial game last weekend was a brilliant celebration of his time with the club, with former stars Jonas Hoog, Stevie Lyle & Jan Kostal all stepping back onto the ice to celebrate with Stevie.

Head Coach Aaron Nell was pleased to have such a loyal servant back in Swindon again:

Bringing Stevie back is crucial for us, with Lidds retiring there was always going to be some changes on the blue-line and Stevie will contribute night in night out like he has done since stepping into the senior side. The fans absolutely love him, and he’s a huge part of the leadership in the locker-room as well.

His testimonial was an awesome night, and I was delighted to see so many fans turn out for him the way they did. We’re all looking forward to the new season and I know Stevie will be a large part of everything we do in the 22/23 campaign.
