The Bracknell Bees are pleased to announce that they have boosted their 2016/17 English Premier League squad today and are happy to unveil the signing of nineteen year old Latvian born forward Oļegs Laščenko who will wear the Bees #23 jersey.
Olegs is British trained having been part of the Romford Hornets (U16s) and Romford Buccaneers (U18s) before moving along the A12 to Chelmsford for their U18s Mohawks and NIHL2 side Warriors. In his time with the both the Romford and Chelmsford junior sides he put up impressive numbers.
In 2014/15 Laščenko returned home to Latvia and joined HK Liepaja where he went on to ice for the junior and senior teams for two seasons, again putting up some impressive offensive numbers.
Last season the Latvian returned to Chelmsford and joined the senior side, the Chieftains, and had started this season with them also. In his time with the Chieftains the forward has netted fifteen goals and six assists in a little over thirty games.
Bees Head Coach Lukas Smital said of the addition of Olegs Laščenko to the Bees squad for the upcoming campaign:
“I am happy to have been able to add to the squad with the signing of Olegs. He is still a young and developing player but has a keen eye for the net and his addition will give us an extra options up front. For his age Olegs is pretty strong and a very versatile player in defence or as a forward. I look forward to working with him, helping him progress and giving him his chance at EPIHL level.”
