Roster 17/18: Jack Emerson
ULTIMATE WINDOWS-sponsored Billingham Stars today welcome back Jack Emerson as their second signing of the summer, heading towards the new National Ice Hockey League season due to start in September.
20-year-old forward Jack is a product of the Billingham junior development system and former Under-20s captain. Not the biggest player on the ice, Jack has nevertheless proved his worth and grabbed every opportunity he has been given at senior level. Last season Jack was often used on the top forward lines as injury cover and thrived every time, memorably earning Man-of-the-Match for a sterling performance at Solway in January.

Emerson on signing...
"I think this season will be a real shake up for all teams involved, the new league structure will be our biggest test to date and we will need to pull out all the stops to show what we are capable of. It's early days at the moment so it's hard to tell how the season will pan out but I feel we will have the strength and determination to make a real impact on the league.
My personal aims for the upcoming season will be to further prove myself on the ice and to continue to stay fit and healthy. With the league getting stronger this will be a great opportunity to develop and push younger players like myself to be strong competitors in the future."
Stars Media Team insiders on Emerson...
"Jack is a young player with good playmaking ability. Despite being undersized he has captained Billingham sides at junior level showing his competitive edge. He has filled a role in the top six as injury cover over the past couple of years and not looked out of place."
"Jack always leaves it all out there whenever he is given the chance to show what he can do. A nippy player that can get where water can't, Jack has shown flashes of brilliance and with more ice time he can only get better."
