Whitley Warriors are delighted to confirm the signing of Czech forward Matěj Valíček from HC Banik Sokolov.

23-year-old Valíček has experience in the Czech Republic and also spent four years playing with Southern Oregon Spartans in the WSHL.

The signing increases competition for places and strengthens our forward options. We welcome Matěj and I’m sure the fans will be excited to see him in a Warriors shirt.”
