The Hercules Ice Hockey Apparel sponsored Solway Sharks are delighted to welcome former Shark Joe Coulter back into the squad on a short term basis. Joe is no stranger to the Solway jersey, coming through the junior club and playing for the senior side for 8 very successful consecutive seasons before venturing over the border in 2019. 

Joe is currently the player coach with the Widnes Wild, a club we are very happy to be working closely and building a strong relationship with. We extend our thanks to them for facilitating this deal and for looking after our young guns Kyle, Owen and Bailey so well as part of there squad this year. 

Assistant Coach, Jamie Thomson said ” We have a pretty heavy run of fixtures coming up and with a few injuries, Family commitments and of course the u20 World championships on currently it was obvious that if we could pull in extra help then we should and Joe was the first person I thought of, he knows this league, the way we play and the boys in the room it was a no brainer and obviously gives us some support on the coaching and leadership side also. he’s buzzing to pull on the jersey again and while only short term he’s the type of guy that will do all he can to help us. I’d like to again thank Widnes for allowing this it’s very much appreciated” 

Joe will join up with the team in Hull this Friday as we take on the Seahawks at 6.15pm.
