Line returns to Slough Jets

Forward Jamie Line has signed for the Slough Jets returning to the club he last played for in 2009.

In his time at The Hangar he returned seven goals and seven assists (7+7) in 21 starts before following outgoing coach Steve Moria to Basingstoke for 2009/10 with 15 more points from 50 games.

He then agreed a two way contract with Milton Keynes Thunder and Lightning yielding 12 points in the ENL and an assist in the EPL.

With 4+4 in 2011/12 at Milton Keynes and 4+2 in 2012/13 at Peterborough, Line took a break from the game to concentrate on life away from hockey, but he is now ready to return to the ice and continue his hockey career.

For Jets new head coach Craig Moran it's another player added to the squad, helping to reverse the trend of players exiting the club in recent weeks.

Moran said: "Talking to Jamie over the Christmas holiday, I am pleased that “6'9 Jamie Line” will be wearing a Jets jersey again for the rest of the season.

"Jamie is a hard working forward who never gives up and I know he will bring a lot to the team.

"I'm very much looking forward to working with him in 2014."

Line will link up with the team as soon as the registration is complete.

The 5ft 6in Luton born forward learned his hockey at Swindon and Bracknell, making his senior debut in 2005/06 with the Bracknell Bees while playing Under 16 and ENL.

In 2006/07 he made a single appearance for the Under 19s at Bracknell to go with 38 appearances in the EPL returning 4+5.

 He also made his international debut in the same season playing five times for GB Under 18s.

In 2007/08 he secured a two way contract with the EPL Bees and EIHL Bison scoring 4+6 in the EPL and making seven appearances in EIHL together with five more GB Under 18 games.
