The TSI World Bees can confirm that Alan Lack, JJ Pitchley and Dan Bradley will not be returning to the Bees for the 2023/2024 season.
A product of the Bracknell junior system, Alan Lack made his first appearance for the Bees in 2010/2011, stepping up from
the Bracknell Hornets – he followed up with a handful of appearances the following season. Alan then signed full time to the Bees in 2012/2013, notching 11 points (8+3). Stints at Invicta, Slough, Peterborough, Basingstoke, and Raiders would see 8 seasons separating his time as a Bee as he finally returned during the 2021/2022 season. 2022/2023 would see Lacky produce his best numbers in a Bees jersey with 9 goals and 14 assists giving him a tally of 23 points. In total, Alan made 106 appearances for the Bees, totalling 39 points (19+20).
Like Alan Lack, JJ Pitchley also finishes his second stint at the Bees. Following a spell at the club in 2014/2015, where he scored 7 points (2+5) in 13 games, JJ went on to play the following season split between the Hornets and Bison before heading back to his hometown club, Romford in 2016. He would stay at the Raiders until the beginning of this past season, when he rejoined the Bees – scoring 18 points (7+11) in 54 games. In total, JJ played 67 games for the Bees, scoring 9 goals and 16 assists for a total of 25 points.
Dan Bradley signed for the Bees from the Bristol Pitbulls early in the 2022/2023. Again, Bradley spent time in the Bracknell junior programme before heading to the Jets system. He would go on to play senior hockey with the Jets in 2021/2022 where he would also make a solitary appearance for the Bees. In total, Dan has iced 42 times for the Bees, scoring 3 points (1+2).
We would like to thank all 3 players for their contributions and professionalism to the club both on and off the ice during their time with the club and wish them all the best in the future.
