The TSI World Bees can confirm today that Joe Baird will continue to provide cover for the team over the 2022-2023 season.

Baird stepped into support after injuries last season and to be able to continue to call on a defenceman as incredibly experienced as Joe is a benefit for the club.

Prior to last Joe last played for the Bees in the 2019/20 season as an alternate captain and with the 2020/21 season decimated by Coronavirus Joe decided to sit out but when Doug Sheppard made the call Joe was more than happy to lace the skates up again and return to competitive play. In an illustrious career, Joe has played at all levels in the UK and gained experience with Basingstoke Bison, Isle of Wight Raiders and Swindon Wildcats as well as the Bees. Early in his career he also played for Great Britain at both Under 18 and Under 20 age groups.
