Niche IFA paraplanner Josh Batch has re-signed with the Cardiff Devils ice hockey team for the tenth year in a row.
During lockdown, Batch (pictured) has been working full-time at Niche as his training had been postponed due to coronavirus. However, he said it was great to be back on the team for a tenth year.
"We had the season cut really short really abruptly, so I've had to transition into working at Niche full-time which has been a great experience - something I haven't done before because we have always been training."
Batch also said he hopes to extend his playing career as much as he can as well as continuing working at Niche to gain the relevant qualification so that he will hopefully be giving financial advice one day.
In January, Batch had been chosen to be a part of Great Britain's team for the Winter Olympic Qualifiers, but due to Covid-19 the event had been cancelled.
A note on the Niche website said Batch had "little hesitation" in making the decision to stay on the team and felt it was the natural decision to make given his "burgeoning career" as a paraplanner. Niche said it was extremely proud of Batch and his accomplishments for the Devils.
In October last year, Niche signed a two-year partnership between the Cardiff Devils. Niche was recognised as a Platinum Partner by the Devils and have also been the official shirt sponsor for Batch.
