Neil Wilson is an Ogre!

Cross Check Edinburgh Ogres are excited to announce signing of Neil Wilson.

Neil is well known in hockey community from his career as EIHL Official. Time has come for him to make a career as an Ogre too. He is a tough competitor, skilled at both end of “ice” and with a crisp shot. Also a great teammate and a leader out there. We are all excited about this signing.

Head Coach, Gregor Berry:

“Special teams proved to be a big factor in the Summer Classic, so we identified a need to boost our ability to confuse and befuddle referees with the "rules" by bringing on board another experienced official. Neil is a very versatile addition, and will help us at both ends of the rink.”

Neil Wilson:

"This is an exciting time for hockey in Edinburgh and I wanted to be a part of it! The chance to play along side my Refereeing buddy Ally made it an easy decision to sign. I look forward to working with the guys to strengthen our team for the future.“

Neil Wilson will play with #10 and is sponsored by Mark McGill Butcher and Baker!
