After last week’s draw against Cardiff Devils the Lions have gone one better and beaten Wightlink Tigers 5-4 to gain their first win of the season. Further details to follow…
Patrick Ayling and Beverly Irish kindly supplied me with photos from Saturday’s game against Slough, in which a presentation was also made to the family of Jordan Jones. Steve Grout has now also allowed me to feature some of his photos, so, to avoid confusion over copyright, I’ve created two albums, which you can see here and here. We can look forward to more photos from Pat during the course of the season. My thanks go to all three contributors.
Saturday’s opening game of the season was dedicated to the memory of Jordan Jones and his Grandfather, Denis Jones, has written to express his thanks:
“Myself and the family would like to thank everybody at Lee Valley Lions for the wonderful tribute that you gave for Jordan, also for the support that you have given us in our sad loss. I will of course be coming to support the team for home games whenever I can.”
Today sees the Lee Valley Lions back in action against Slough for their first game of the 2013/14 season. Gary Dodds returns as Coach, while Tina Ball is the new Manager. Good luck to all the players for today and throughout the upcoming season.
