Talking from his summer home in Lakeview Terrace, Samuel Jackson joked: “I’ve finally made it, I’m NIHL.
“Having spent 12 years at Chelmsford I’m thrilled to be starting a new at such a great club.
“This’ll be an exciting season and I hope to improve my game and help the team.”
Head Coach, Alan Sampson, added: “He may only be five foot two inches, but he plays likes he’s a 6ft Iron Man.
“He covers the ice well and has fantastic speed, I’m very excited to have him on the team.”
More signings are expected.
