Jarvis Mewett returned to the Dynamos for 2015/16 having previously appeared for the junior sides in Gillingham. In 2009/10 he was icing for the under 16s before also dressing for the under 18s the following year. Come 2011/12 the young defenceman then split his campaign between Kent and the Streatham Royals before Lee Valley gave him a bridge between junior and senior hockey in 2012/13. Mewett would ice for both the under 18s and the Lions in the NIHL South’s second tier that season and he would do the same the following term – this time captaining the junior squad whilst also making his mark in Division 2. In 2014/15 he then spent a full term with the Lee Valley Lions before Dynamos Head Coach Kevin Parrish invited him to return to Gillingham last season. Back in Kent Mewett was ever present for the Mos and dressed for all 50 fixtures notching two assists from the blue line in his debut NIHL South Division 1 campaign. Now the blue liner will be hoping to build on that first term and cement his place within the NIHL South’s top tier.
“Jarvis is still a young defenceman finding his way in our league but he has the tools and the attitude to be a solid player at this level. He was at every game for us last year, he’s hungry to learn and he wants to push himself and I had no hesitation in inviting him back for another season. Jarvis spent a number of his junior years with the Mos and is proud to wear the badge and 2016/17 represents an opportunity for him to continue to develop and make his mark in the NIHL South Division 1. I look forward to working with him again after the summer and I know he will be keen to return to the ice come September”.
