Roster 19/20: Sam's a Star
ULTIMATE WINDOWS-sponsored Billingham Stars today reveal the return of another young Star hoping to make his mark over the course of a full season this time around as Sam Warnock signs on.
A January pick-up from Hull Jets, 20-year-old defenceman Warnock learned his trade coming up through the Billingham junior ranks before departing for Humberside in 2016 to split his time between the Jets N2 senior side and the Kingston Sharks Under-20s. Warnock had registered six senior League points before deciding to come home midway through last season. Still recovering from a previous injury, Warnock nevertheless slotted into the side and iced in 15 games.
Now fully fit, Warnock is looking forward to a full season as a senior Star and shared a few thoughts with us ahead of his signing:
"I am delighted to be signed for a full season as I started half way through last season and didn’t really show what I could bring to the team. But now I’m looking forward to the League, a Cup run, hopefully bringing silverware back to Billingham and showing the fans what we can do."
Welcome back to the Stars, Sam!
