The Lions’ player/coach, James Scott-Joseph, has featured in a short video that talks about the steps he and Lee Valley Ice Centre are taking to encourage more people to take up ice hockey. He also mentions his dad, who spent many years doing this – the greatly missed Eddie Joseph. You can read the article here.

A couple of fixture updates:
Our home game against the Invicta Mustangs originally scheduled for Sunday 26th November 2023 has been moved one day earlier, to Saturday 25th November, faceoff remains at 17:30.
And due to the unfortunate withdrawal of the Swindon NIHL2 Wildcats from the league, our two fixtures against them have also been cancelled.
An updated fixture graphic can be seen below:
After a positive conversation with Lee Valley and GLL, we are confident about the future of ice hockey at the new Lee Valley Ice Centre and, although it’s still early, we believe all parties involved are working towards mutually beneficial solutions.
We understand the new centre must comply with planning permission and we are working together to ensure we’re able do this in a way that still supports the club and its supporters.
We can confirm that this Sunday’s home game against Haringey will be going ahead as planned and we will be doing our upmost to ensure that all those associated with the home and away teams are able to enjoy the match at the new venue.
