Ultimate Windows sponsored Billingham Stars

ULTIMATE WINDOWS-sponsored Billingham Stars are delighted to announce – on the occasion of his 18th birthday – that talented young defenceman James Hellens will be returning to the senior Stars squad for the coming season.

Hellens may be just turning 18 but he has been an integral part of the Stars senior side for two seasons already, combining his senior duties with those at both Under-18s and Under-20s level. A regular goalscorer for his junior sides, Hellens is still looking for his first senior goal but has racked up an impressive amount of minutes patrolling the blue line for one so young.

Hellens is looking forward to seeing what the new coaching set-up of Stephen Foster and Michael Bowman can bring to the side, and to the challenge of adjusting to the new restructured League and Cup format.

Welcome back James, and wishing you a very Happy Birthday!

The Stars will be making more player announcements in the coming days and weeks, as well as news about our Juniors.
