Victoria Highlanders First 2018 Signings


Victoria, BC – Victoria Highlanders and head coach Thomas Niendorf are pleased to announce the signing of two returning players to their roster for the upcoming 2018 Premier Development League (PDL) season. Forward Blair Sturrock and Goalkeeper Simon Norgrove are the first additions to Niendorf’s side.

Sturrock returns for his fifth season with the Highlanders. The former Plymouth Argyle and Swindon Town professional looks to add his part to the 2018 Highlanders PDL season.

“He’s a very accomplished player,” said Niendorf. “Blair has played at a high level, he understands the standards and is very well recognized in the community as not only a player, but also as a coach and a person for the community.”

Also returning to the Highlanders PDL squad for 2018 is Highlanders Academy product Norgrove, who plies his trade during the varsity season  with U Sports’ Guelph Gryphons

“I look forward to training and playing under Thomas while learning as much from him as I can,” said Norgrove. “I think the new kits and owners are exciting and are a step in the right direction for the club and I am looking forward to being able to play with my childhood teammates for another year.
