Bracknell Bees logo The Bracknell Bees are pleased to unveil their latest signing for the forth-coming 2015/16 EPIHL campaign as towering 17 year old defenceman Josh Tetlow has penned a full time three year contract with the club (with club options).

The 6’6” Frimley-born defenceman joined the Bracknell Stingers (U16) in 2012 and has gone on to represent the U18 Drones and ENIHL Hornets too before making his Bracknell Bees debut last season and going on to thirteen Bees appearances.

Tetlow has also represented South West U17’s in the Nationals last season and was part of the Bracknell Drones U18 Championship winning side in 2013/14.

Bracknell Bees Head Coach Lukas Smital commented on the newest squad member:
“Let’s be honest - there aren’t many 6’6” 17 year olds around and somehow I think Josh has been overlooked. He has a good hockey and match sense for someone so young and his step up will be a great learning curve for someone who I am sure will get better and better for sure.”

Smital went on to sum up by saying:
“He is another keen, honest and hardworking player who improves day by day, both on and off ice, and is keen and hungry to succeed.”

Ben Beeching, Bracknell Bees General Manager said of the latest addition to the Bees squad:
“I'm excited to welcome Josh as a full-time member of the Bees blueline. Along with Josh Smith, Ziggy Beesley and Tom Relf, Josh is a crucial part of the club's long-term future plan and this is a commitment underlined by another multi-year deal. We need to be, and are, thinking ahead several years ahead, and Josh is part of that plan.”

He concluded by adding:
“I'm a big fan of his game, and his positional awareness and reading of the game even at a young age were very evident in watching him not only in the Bees last season but in junior. He also gives us the dimension of another left-handed shot on the blueline which is an often overlooked asset.”
