The Invicta Dynamos have continued building for the 2021/22 season with the signing of 24 year old physical forward Jack Flynn who switches to Gillingham from the NIHL National’s Romford IHC.
Jack Flynn arrives in Kent having spent the majority of his formative years in Pretoria, South Africa. He followed this up with stints with the Bradford Bulls in Ontario Canada, the South Oregon Spartans and Bellingham Blazers in Oregon and Washington USA and in Scotland with the Aberdeen Lynx. Despite spending much of his youth overseas, Flynn is a British citizen and is therefore not considered an import player.
In 2019/20 Flynn was snapped up by Romford IHC in the NIHL National where he quickly made his presence felt with his battling attitude and formidable physical play. The forward notched up 43 appearances in the gold and blue of Romford, found the target twice, claimed three assists and amassed 163 minutes in penalties as he set about leaving his mark in the division. As with all things, Covid-19 put paid to his hockey ambitions in 2020/21 but now, with hockey set to return in September, Flynn is ready to lace up his skates again and bring his feisty style of play to the Invicta Dynamos for 2021/22.
Having completed the signing of Jack Flynn, Player-Coach Anthony Leone said, “Jack is a player I have been after from the first time I saw him dress for the Raiders. He’s big and he’s physical but he also has speed. He has a good hockey brain and can ice as both a forward and a defenceman. He plays the style of hockey that I love and I know the fans will love it too. I’ve no doubt the supporters will enjoy what he brings to the club and I know he’ll be a contender for fans’ favourite come the end of the season. I’m very happy to have him on the roster and look forward to working with him in 2021/22.”
Speaking on his switch to Kent Jack Flynn said, “I’m really happy to be joining the Mos and can’t wait to get back to action. I’m just really looking forward to being back on the ice and competing again.” Asked what convinced him to complete the move he said, “It’s more who than what. The Websters have told me all about the Dynamos – about the organisation and how great the fans are. They really sold the club to me and I’m very happy to be a part of it.”
Questioned on his aims for the season Flynn added, “At the end of the day a cold beer always goes down a lot smoother after a win and I’ll be going into each game looking to make that happen. I’ve never really cared about personal targets like goals and points, just as long as the team gets the two points on the board and so two points closer to winning the league I’m happy. My strengths are probably my physicality and my determination and I can guarantee that you will always see me giving my all for the shirt and the fans. I can’t wait to see all the supporters in the stands cheering us on.”
New signing Jack Flynn will wear number 74 for the Invicta Dynamos in 2021/22.
