Welcome Back to Manchester, Adam Long!

Your Go Goodwins Manchester Storm are delighted to welcome Adam Long back for the 2019/20 season.

After joining the club last season as Declan Ryan’s replacement, the British netminder joins the club for his first full season.

The 23-year old goalie has had plenty of ice time in UK hockey, and is ready to step up to the top level and show what he can do. Previous teams for the netminder include: Peterborough Phantoms u16, u18 and seniors, plus Chelmsford based teams –  Mohawks, Chieftains and Warriors. The 2017/18 season saw Long ice between NIHL sides Peterborough Phantoms and Hull Pirates, his save percentage an average of .92%

Long has also represented Great Britain twice in 2016/17 and 2018/19 in the Universiade – the international event organised by the International University Sports Federation.

By the 2018/19 season, Long was signed to Invicta Dynamos, playing 20 games before signing a two-way contract with the Storm when Declan Ryan departed due to a career change.

Signed only to the Storm for the upcoming season, Long is one to watch – a talented young British netminder, who will play an important role at the club.
