The Aspray Chester Deeside Dragons are excited to formally confirm the addition of Czech forward, Jakub Hajek, to our roster for the 2023/24 season. We believe that Jakub’s skills and experience will complement the incredible talent we already have in our team. His signing is a testament to our commitment to continual growth and development. We are confident that together, as a united squad, we will continue to move up the league
A Rival Becomes a Dragon
Fans of the Deeside Dragons and the Widnes Wild have shared a spirited rivalry over the years, making this signing even more intriguing. Jakub Hájek, known for his formidable skill set and tactical gameplay, previously played for the Widnes Wild, giving him a unique understanding of the local competition.
What This Means for the Dragons
This is not just another addition; it’s a strategic one. Hájek brings both experience and skill to a team that is already brimming with talent. His style of play complements the Dragons’ offensive strategies, making him an invaluable asset in the drive for championship success. The Deeside Dragons, operated entirely by volunteers and functioning as a non-profit, are keen on maintaining their high standards of competition, and the acquisition of Hájek is a step in that direction.
Jakub Hájek is expected to make his Deeside Dragons debut in the upcoming match against the Nottingham Lions double header this weekend. Fans, players, and even rivals are keen to see how the new Dragon will fare in his first game.
Head Coach Mike Clancy said “We are delighted to announce that Jakob Hajek will be joining the Aspray Chester Deeside Dragons for the remainder of the 23/24 season.
Jakob has skated with us over a number of weeks and is a player I’ve worked with previously. He will add even further depth into the Dragons game day roster, he’s a great character, works tirelessly on and off the puck and is sure to become a fan’s favourite as he finds his feet and starts contributing to our points tally.”
