JAMIE Milton has come out of retirement to re-join Slough Jets.

The 25-year-old hung up his ice hockey stick two years ago but has now decided to relaunch his career.

And he revealed his decision to return to the ice came whilst watching his beloved Jets in action last season.

“I watched the final game of last season and thought I need to play again, so here we go” said Milton. “It’s going to be tough as I have not played for about two years, but I’m hungry so let’s do it.”

Milton gained a big reputation as a youngster emerging through the Jets’ youth system.

He played 136 English Premier Ice Hockey League games for the club, scoring 10 goals, making seven assists and incurring only 12 penalty minutes.

He then dropped down into National Ice Hockey league One and Two where he flourished, scoring 59 goals in 60 games along with 57 assists and 98 penalty minutes.

Milton also represented England at Under 16 and Under 19 level for whom he made 80 appearances and netted 87 times with 63 assists.

He also cracked a memorable hat-trick for his country against Scotland in Hull.

Jets general manager Steve English added: “It’s great getting Jamie back, a Slough junior with that much experience and still only 25.

“He still has his hand speed and to think he has not played in two years is crazy. Welcome back Jamie.”

Meanwhile, hard-hitting defender Timo Lindgren has also returned to Jets as assistant player/coach.

The 21-year-old Slough-born star recently qualified as a Level 2 coach and will be helping out behind the scenes.

“I wanted to put my coaching qualifications to good use and an opening within the Jets’ coaching staff arose so I went for it,” he declared. “So far it’s been an interesting summer with playing, training and watching the team build.

“Now we have to gel on the ice and get the lines right, we are going to be an extremely quick and skilled team.”

In a triple boost for fans, Jets have also signed forward Adam Harris from Oxford City Stars. The 25-year-old said: “I can’t wait to start training hard with the team and show them what I can do.

“I play fast as skating is my strong point and it’s an opportunity to step up and show what I’m capable of.”
