Defenceman Nick Compton signs new Swindon Wildcats deal

Swindon Wildcats

Defenceman Nick Compton has committed to Swindon Wildcats for next season's English Premier League campaign.

The 23-year-old started as a junior at Wildcats and following a stint in the United States returned to the Wiltshire side last year.

Head coach Ryan Aldridge told the club website: "Compton is a very smart hockey player.

"With the work he is putting in this off-season I am sure he will play a huge part of our D core this year."

Aldridge added: "He is another guy that the boys in the locker room want to be around making him a key signing."
