Wig Wham Bham

Streatham are pleased to announce the return of 6’ 6” forward Chris Wiggins as the Guildford born powerhouse signs up for a second season in South London.

The 28 year old joined us last summer from English Premier League side Milton Keynes Lightning and came with a reputation as one of the toughest Brits in the UK.

Injuries sadly reduced his appearances last season but he was a massive influence when he suited up and proved he has much more to his game than fighting.

‘Wiggy is someone I have had as a team mate both in the EPL and of course last year here in Streatham’ said Head Coach Nick Chinn.

‘He scored a few goals last year and I know if he can stay healthy he will rack up more points this season’

‘In this league there are few who will go toe to toe with him, but his hard hitting style of play is enough to create space for his line mates and keep others honest. He will be a big asset for us this year.’

Wiggins started his senior career in his home town for the Guildford Flames in the old BNL before spells with Haringey, Milton Keynes, Basingstoke and Bracknell.

A player opposition fans love to hate, Wiggins riled most of them last year with his no nonsense combative style and some quality goals too. He also played a key role on special teams when required.

When he wasn’t dispatching opponents on the ice, Wiggins rebuked his critics on Twitter with the odd witty riposte over the campaign.

‘I'm really glad to be back with Streatham’ he explained.

‘I was unfortunate enough to suffer quite severely through injury last season and I'm looking forward to making a vast improvement on the input I was able to have on the ice for this coming season.’

‘I believe that Chinny is addressing the areas that will see us mount another challenge for silverware and I'm excited to be a part of it.’

Chris will continue to wear the number 82 jersey and you can sponsor his home or away jersey for only £100.

You get to keep it at the end of the season, however as they are so popular we are going to put all interested names into a hat and draw out the winner over the next 48 hours.
