Calum Robertson signs for 2019/20
MILTON KEYNES, 29 MAY 2019: Another exciting young player has committed to MK Lightning for the upcoming season.
Calum Robertson – Caly – has signed, joining us from his hometown club of Fife, where he scored 24 goals and 41 points in 18 SNL and under 20 games last year and he has international experience having helped to guide the national side to a gold medal at the 2018 World Junior Championships (U18 pision 2A).
He us undoubtedly a hot prospect, as MK Lightning Head Coach Lewis Clifford said “Caly has a whole load of raw talent and huge potential. I’ve seen him play for GB U18’s in their televised games a year ago and I was lucky enough to see him play in the England v Scotland game at the conference tournament over the May bank holiday weekend – all national bias aside, he was one of the best players on the ice for either team.”
Impressively, Caly also had 78 Elite League appearances under his belt, which will help his game at MK, as Lewis Clifford explained “He brings the experience of training and playing with an Elite League team in Fife (and Edinburgh before that) and that will hold him in good stead to play a much larger role on our team where we’ll give him the opportunity to use his skills and abilities in a variety of situations.”
Commenting on his move south, Caly said “I’ve signed because I think it’s a great opportunity to play in this new league and seems to be a great fit for me and where I’m at in my career.”
“I’ve chosen MK because I’ve heard nothing but good things about the organisation and coach, and I’m definitely looking forward to playing in front of the barmy army – they’ve been incredible the times I’ve experienced playing in MK!”
Lewis Clifford finished by saying “In the past we have had a great deal of success in signing talented young Scottish players, and I am pleased to have signed Caly to hopefully continue that pattern of success.”
