Devils go to Warman
Posted on 30 August 2012
GB International Warman joins the NIHL Devils.
With the Devils signings coming in thick and fast for the 2012-2013 season, we are pleased to announce the signing of James Warman from the Bristol Pitbulls and Telford Tigers. At only 19 James has represented Telford Juniors most of his career, he spent a short spell at Grimsby in the ENL before returning to Telford to represent the Premier League team and the ENL Team, James was selected for the GB under 18’s squad for 2010-2011 and played 4 games for team GB in the world championships.
Last season James spent time with the Bristol Pitbulls and the Telford Tigers in the Premier League. James will join up with the Devils squad tonight for pre-season training.
Mark Cuddihy commented on the latest addition 'James will be a huge player for us and I’m very happy he chose to play in Cardiff next season.
He really caught my eye last year and I made my first contact with him in April but he was unsure what he was going to do. We have spoken a few times since and I’m really pleased to bring him to Cardiff.
He’s serious about his hockey and ticks a lot of boxes for our club with his age and talent. I have spoken to many players that have played with James in the ENL and EPL and many have described him as the best young defenseman they have played with! He is aware of our development system and I’m sure he want to follow in the footsteps of others here'
James added, 'I am looking forward to playing for the Devils and excited for the opportunities a new team brings. Cardiff proved last season that they are a top team in this league having taken points from the top clubs, and hopefully we will be able to repeat similar success. It sounds as if we will have a strong team coming into the new season, but I hope that I can be a valuable contribution and bring consistency to the team'
James will wear the number 7 shirt for the Devils, welcome to Cardiff James!!
