Lions Old & New Come Together for Legends Game

On February the 5th 1984, Mike Smith assembled a small band of men coached by Dave Wurthman in the newly-opened Lee Valley Ice Centre. The match, against Oxford University Ice Hockey Club, began three decades of flying pucks, a lot of goals and maybe the odd scrap.

To celebrate 30 years of Ice Hockey at the Den, the Lee Valley Lions are delighted to announce that on Saturday August the 30th, the current Lions squad will take on a side made up of Original Lions from the teams that graced Lea Bridge Road in the 80’s and 90’s.

Songs like “When the Going Gets Tough” and “Welcome to the Jungle” will blare out through the speakers once more and the Clock Enders will reunite for one (or several) more beer in the rink bar.

So come to the Den, and join the celebration as the club marks 30 years of East London Ice Hockey.
You can keep up to date with player announcements and ticket prices (to be announced shortly) on our Twitter, Instagram & Facebook pages.

Don’t forget you can still see the Lions on July 26th & 27th when they take on Haringey Racers in the Richards Cup.
