The 25 year-old left-winger helped himself to 10 goals and 20 assists from 24 games last year leaving him in 6th place in the Lions points standings.

Head Coach Matt Bradbury spoke about the latest signing “Ben is a real work horse – he enjoys the game and plays wherever he can to help the team.  He is still learning week in week out even though his age (25) he is now officially a team veteran!”

“I’ve worked with Ben over the last two seasons and he’s great to have around the team and comes to play every night.”

On rejoining the team for the forthcoming campaign Ben said “I’m just looking forward to linking up with the team again and continuing how we ended last season – I had a good back end to the season and want to help the team and squad of young players develop further.”

Ben joins Joe Wightman, Luke Thomas and Michael Rose who have already re-signed for the forthcoming campaign.

Coach Bradbury concluded: “This season we are looking for consistency within the team as well as utilising our local home grown talent as much as possible as part of the teams ongoing development plans.”
