As far as I know, Wall is being sold through Mercian, or bought up by Mercian, after the company stuttered with their flat pad release that was ahead of its time and then struggled financially. It is interesting to see a hockey company buy into using mask designs and modernise, with hockey goalies now almost all wearing mask designs from junior upwards. The Wall design itself has smaller sightlines and visual space due to the design, so it would be interesting to see what impact that has on a goalkeeper's peripheral vision and their save making (not sure how you would analyse that).
With Chris Borsoi having left for East Grinstead to compete with Paddy Smith, Dave made the starting position his own again and I'm sure will look for a strong season again this September.
Switching headgear wasn't the only kit change for him this season, seemingly ditching the elbow pads/tubigrip combo for no arm protection for arm movement and reaction saves.
