The TSI World Berkshire Bees can today confirm that defenceman, Harvey Stead, will not be rejoining the club for the 2024/2025 season.

After the recent birth of his daughter, Harvey has decided to step down from National League hockey to be able to spend more time together with his young family.

Harvey came through the junior system in Bracknell and made his Bees debut in the 2013/2014 season and, other than a single season at the Swindon Wildcats back in 2015/2016, he has played for the club ever since – icing in over 400 games and named alternate captain between between 2021 and 2023.

Everyone at the Bees wish Harvey all the best for the future and thank him for his incredible time and effort at the club.
