Declan Balmer returns to Manchester for 18/19 as the only Brit in the Storm D-core. Prior to joining us he had 3 successful seasons at the Basingstoke Bisons, including winning the EPIHL Title in the 15/16 campaign. Before that Balmer was also an NIHL North champion with the Solway Sharks.
Born in Hull, Balmer has developed into a strong 2-way defenseman who is not afraid to stand up for his team mates. He was a regular selection for Great Britain at U18 and U20 level, and signs for the Storm as one of their U23 British players.
