Les McDougall is an Ogre!

Cross Check Edinburgh Ogres are happy to confirm the signing of Les McDougall!

Les comes with experience in every kind of hockey and most importantly, massive love for the game. We never stop searching for the right players, and it was clear after few practice sessions that it’s exactly what Les is. He will debut for the #OgreArmy in this weekend friendly tournament.

Chairman, Kris Grabowski:

“I hesitated at first. Wasn’t sure if having 2 bearded top knots in the team is a good idea… However, after seeing Les in action all doubts were gone. His excitement and enthusiasm are exactly what we looking for. He is like a hungry Ogre in Raccoon den out there…”

Les McDougall:

"I'm very excited to be joining the Edinburgh Ogres for the upcoming 2018/2019 season.
I've been a huge fan of Ice Hockey and inline hockey since I was about 11. Dragging my Dad along to see the Royals get humped week in week out but we were instantly hooked.

I've played Inline, Ball Hockey and Rec Ice Hockey and when I've seen what the Ogres were building in such a professional manner I didn't hesitate to get in touch and was delighted when I was given the nod to join after a couple of training sessions, especially when we have such experienced players in our team from such leagues as the UK Elite League, Canadian GMHL and SNL.

I would like to thank D.O design for sponsoring me this season and hope I can bring some wee man power to the team.”

Les McDougall will play with #49 and is sponsored by DO Design!
