The 32 year old joins us from Peterborough Phantoms following a glittering career that saw him ice in the Elite League with Belfast Giants and Coventry Blaze as well as represent his country in numerous World Championships.

“Leigh is a player I am very familiar with from my time in the Elite League” said Head Coach Jeremy Cornish.

“I always liked his size and the skill he possesses and I'm really looking forward to seeing him in a RedHawks shirt.” 

“He's won a number of trophies throughout his career and I know we lacked a bit of experience last year, so this signing should help with our veteran presence on the ice and in the locker room.”

“Leigh played for a strong Peterborough side last year that was in the title hunt right until the last weekend of the year and that experience should help us moving forward in the new-look league.”

Jamieson won the EPL Play-Offs and Cup with his hometown club MK Lightning before his move to Peterborough last year where he was an almost ever present. As well as his goal threat and playmaking skills, Jamieson is also able to play in defence and has shown a willingness to drop the gloves if required using his 6’ 3” frame to his advantage.

“I’m delighted to be joining Streatham” said Jamieson. “It’s a great club that impressed me last season with their style of play.”

“I think with the team Corny is putting together we will be challenging every game and I’m looking forward to the season starting in September.”
