I've been lurking for a few weeks and have really found the forum posts useful/interesting. Decided it would be good to have an account to speak to fellow goalies as there's not a huge hockey scene in Wales!
I've played inline on and off since 2005 (off from 2012 to a couple of months ago). I've moved home and reconnected with my old teammates who are all still playing and I'm so hyped for this season. Realised how much I missed hockey and being a goalie, sad that I have wasted possibly some of my best development years from 18 to 24. I have tried ice in the past but have never had the funds to get into it so I'm back playing on Cardiff's new purpose built roller rink!
I played at a high standard (relatively speaking, it being inline and in the UK) and I'm looking forward to working hard to be even better than I was as a kid. As I've gotten older I'm enjoying keeping up with the pros more and am loving the gear siting thread.
Thanks for having me!
