New Storm coach, Ryan Finnerty, couldn’t be happier to have re-signed his former player for the upcoming season, commenting;

“Mike was someone I brought into the Clan partway through last season, and what an impact he made. When i was doing my reference checks on him last year, all his previous coaches passed comment on his not just his overall ability, but also his enthusiasm for the game.

He took everyone by surprise with his level of skill, and showed how lethal he is in front of goal too. He picked up an injury towards the end of last season which stopped him in his tracks, but he’s over that now and getting himself ready for a big season in Manchester. Storm fans are going to love Hammy and what he brings to the team every night, i’m delighted he has decided to follow me to Manchester.”

Storm General Manager Neil Russell was also thrilled to secure the former Clan player, commenting;

“Mike is someone that was a thorn in the Storm’s side last season. I know a lot of last seasons team passed comment on him every time we played against the Clan, given his skill and overall offensive output. Ryan was really keen to get him on board here at the Storm Shelter for next season, and i’m as equally delighted we have managed to secure his signature after such an impressive debut season in the EIHL. Things are shaping up really nicely, it’s exciting times, that’s for sure!”
