Chilcott Returns to Hometown Club

Nathan Chilcott has agreed to return to the Bristol Pitbulls after spending the last six seasons with the Swindon Wildcats.

Chilcott came up through the Bristol junior system where he was the stand-out player of his generation. In his last season at under-16, he scored 37 goals in 17 games, more than four times more than anyone else in the team. That same season, he also finished fifth in scoring while playing up in the u18 team, despite playing fewer games than most of his teammates.

Those performances saw Chilcott step up to the Pitbulls the following season for the first senior games of his career.

After captaining the u18 squad, Chilcott then decided to switch to the Swindon NIHL Wildcats to further his career. From his first season there, despite being one of the younger members of the team, he has consistently been one of their top scorers.

Now, despite still only being 23 years old, Chilcott returns to Bristol where he will add greater depth to a team that perhaps struggled a little in that department last season.

On returning to Bristol, Chilcott said: “I’m looking forward to returning to the Bristol Pitbulls this season after they gave me my first senior break.

“During my time at Swindon, I’ve developed as a player and would like to thank them for giving me that opportunity. However, I feel that the time is right for me to return to Bristol.”
