Dipp­nall set to stay on with Wild

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Theguide -

THE Widnes Wild are de­lighted to an­nounce the re­turn of Shaun ‘Dippy’ Dipp­nall for a sixth sea­son.

Dipp­nall has played vir­tu­ally all of his se­nior hockey at the Wild apart from a mid-ca­reer move which saw him ice for just nine games for an­other side.

For the Wild, Dipp­nall has won two play­off medals, played 133 games scor­ing 234 points in­clud­ing the cru­cial five-hole penalty shot against the Hull Jets in the 2018 NiHL2 Play­offs.

Dipp­nall said: “I am re­ally happy to be back at Widnes again this sea­son and I’m ex­cited to get the sea­son go­ing again.

“Ob­vi­ously last year we fell short of win­ning the league but I am con­fi­dent in the team Ollie [Bar­ron] is putting to­gether we will have the strength to go one step fur­ther this sea­son.”

Once again, Dipp­nall will wear the num­ber 93 shirt. ●
