The Bracknell Bees are pleased to announce the final addition to their 2017-18 NIHL Division 1 South roster as twenty-three year old, Guildford born, forward George Norcliffe joins the club.

Norcliffe was a Guildford U16 Firestars and U18 Phoenix player for four seasons before making the move to the Solent & Gosport Devils for four seasons where he went on to score sixty-three goals and fifty-eight assists in over 140 games in all competitions.   In 2014-15 he was the Top British scorer for the Devils with twenty-six goals and twenty-six assists in forty-one games.   In his time with the Solent Devils he was also voted Supporters Player of the Year two seasons running.  

At the start of last season Norcliffe signed for the ill-fated Wightlink Raiders and made the move to Streatham following the demise of Wightlink going on to score seventeen goals and ten assists in twenty-eight games for Streatham.  

The talented forward has nearly 200 NIHL games racked up already with nearly a hundred goals and more than seventy-five assists to his name and we look forward to seeing him in the Black, White and Gold of the Bees.

Bracknell Bees Head Coach Scott Spearing said of his latest squad signing:
“George has been a player I have always kept an eye on. He has all the attributes of a well rounded player that could become a top British forward if he is able to push himself out of his comfort zone. I look forward to working with him in the new season.“

As in previous seasons we are happy to announce that George's jerseys will be available as part of our 2017-18 Own & Loan Jersey scheme (full details available HERE) please email us at with the details of the jersey you are interested in.

All shirts are sold on a first come, first served basis and the process is that you “own” the jersey and “loan” it back to the player for the season to wear. The jersey will then be presented to the owner at the end of the season at a time and date to be arranged.
