Harrison Lillis has an association with the Dynamos that dates back to his junior years and he made his senior debut for the Invicta Mustangs in the NIHL South’s second tier aged just 16 in 2009/10. Since then the skater has battled to establish himself in the league and last season was arguably his best so far as he regularly clocked up the minutes in team’s rear guard. Lillis was just one of five players that was ever present throughout 2016/17 and his tally of 50 outings across all competitions took his total appearances in a Mos jersey to 200. Now the blue liner, known for not shying away from the physical side of the game, will be adding to that total as he returns for another year at the Silver Blades Gillingham ready to build on the success of the last year.
“2015/16 was a big year for Harry and you can already see he’s fiercely determined to do even better next season. Despite his young age Harry has been with the Mos for a long time and played in a variety of positions but he was always seeking that breakthrough campaign and last term I think we saw a player that had really found his feet. He didn’t look out of place against the league’s best forwards, he earned every minute of his ice time and I’ve no doubt he raised a few eyebrows. Since the end of the season he has been working phenomenally hard to get himself in great shape for the new campaign and I think the NIHL South Division 1 will be seeing a much stronger, fitter and faster Harrison Lillis in 2016/17 which will only be a great news for the Dynamos. Harry is a more determined than ever, he loves this club and I think it’s going to be an exciting year for him in Gillingham. I look forward to working with him again come September”.
