Phoenix sign back-up netminder for 2011/12 season

Tuesday, 30th August 2011

J Davidson sponsored Manchester Phoenix are pleased to announce the signing of netminder Jorge El-Hage as back up to starting goalie Steve Fone.

Jorge played for the Trafford Metros ENL side last season. He also dressed as back up to Fone on two away games last season.

The young netminder came through the ranks, playing regularly for the club’s Under 18 side.

Speaking from his Rochdale home, Jorge said: “This is a great opportunity for me to learn from Steve. He had a great season last year, helping the club to the championship and I want to be part of the club’s continuing success.

Phoenix have a great fan base, they really support the team and they are a great bunch to play in front of. I will be doing my best in training to be ready for any eventuality if called on by the coach.”

MD Neil Morris said: “It is a major boost for the club to be able to bring up young players to the senior team and bodes well for the future of Manchester Phoenix. Coach Hand and myself are committed to the development of local young talent for the benefit of the club and the community.”
