  • 24 year old Elite League experienced netminder puts pen to paper
  • GB Under 20s Gold Medal Winner
  • Trained in America with Mercyhurst University

Head Coach of the Berkshire Cycles Bracknell Bees has started putting together the pieces of his 2019/20 team to take their place in the new National League and follows yesterday’s first signing announcement by further announcing that shot-stopper Adam Goss will join the team.

The 24 year old Coventry born netminder will link up with the Bees after a summer playing with the Canterbury Red Devils in New Zealand. He spent last season with Milton Keynes Lightning of the Elite League appearing 15 times between the pipes.

He was born in Coventry and joined the Blaze junior set up to learn his trade working his way through the development system before being rewarded with an appearance for the senior team at the age of 16. The next season he went on to make 5 appearances for the Elite League Blaze.

In 2012/13 he played his only season of GB Under 18 posting a .929 save percentage and also went on to backstop GB Under 20s in the same season where he recorded .907.

A final season with Coventry followed before heading to America to study at and play for Mercyhurst University for four years. In his first year in America he received his final GB Under 20s call up, guiding the team to a Gold Medal at the WJC D2A, before topping out on age grounds.

On announcing his latest signing Doug Sheppard said; “When putting together my list of targets for the upcoming season, Adam was one of the key features so I’m delighted he will be joining us.

He comes with a great playing pedigree but I’ve also been really pleased with the character he’s shown so far, with his determination to win silverware here at the Hive.”

With ink fresh on the contract Adam Goss added; “I’m thrilled to join Bracknell Bees and be a presence between the pipes on our team’s campaign to bring home silverware this year”.

Adam is 24, stands at 5’10 and weighs 163lbs. He catches left handed.
