Lennon and Lucas join Warriors

Whitley Warriors

Whitley Warriors are delighted to welcome young players Lennon Thomas and Jay Lucas to the club for the remainder of the 2022-23 season.

17-year-old defenceman Lennon Thomas recently played for Billingham Stars at junior level before breaking into the senior squad last season. He also had a season with Langton Royals in the Canadian Premier Junior Hockey League (CPJHL), icing 33 times in 2019-20. He will wear the #71 shirt for Warriors.

19-year-old forward Jay Lucas also came through Billingham’s junior system before joining Whitley Braves and Whitley Renegades in 2019-20, where he was named England U18 North Most Penalty Minutes, a title also previously held by former Whitley Warriors Liam Smedley and Tom Ralph. Lucas has already iced three times for Warriors and will wear #77 this season.

Welcome to Whitley Warriors, Lennon and Jay!
