He took to the ice for his first AIB Milton Keynes Lightning shifts during the Streaming Series, and his talent was evident, so we are absolutely delighted to have secured the services of Callum Field for 2021/22.
Northampton born Callum turns 17 later in the summer and has been training hard for a number of weeks in preparation for the new season. He brings strength, good size, athleticism and a high compete level which will stand him in great stead for the next part of his development. So far in his career he has made appearances for Milton Keynes, Sheffield and Nottingham juniors as well as a couple of stints in the Ontario junior system in Canada.
Lightning Head Coach Lewis Clifford is very happy that Callum has put pen to paper: “I’m delighted to be working with Callum again next season. We saw some great glimpses of his potential during the Streaming Series and I can’t wait to see more of it.”
“The past 12 months or so has been hard on all players but for a young player like Callum during some of his most important developmental years it has been particularly tough to take. He’s been on the ice at any and every possible opportunity, often traveling long distances to grab an hour of ice time and for that I commend him and it’s great to see him taking his development so seriously.”
Callum has made the best of the season hiatus and is raring to go. He said: “I’m really excited to get going and looking forward to the season getting started . Despite the pandemic I have been training hard and can not wait to be part of this team playing back in front of our home fans.”
In a change of shirt number, Callum will wear the number 11 jersey for which the Own and Loan will roll over for the person who grabbed it for the 2020/21 season – Dave Bunyan from the MKL Supporters Club will be in touch shortly!
