Farewell to the 2023/24 season

The Lions have played their last game of the 2023/24 season and will now be enjoying a well-earned rest until the summer, when try-outs for the 2024/25 campaign will get going.  If you’re interested in joining the team next season, then keep an eye on our website/social media as we’ll post details of trials closer to the time.

Until then, here’s a fantastic photo of this season’s squad, courtesy of Kim Jones.  Well done and thank you to all the players, fans and volunteers who’ve been involved with Lee Valley Lions in their first season back at the Den.

Home game arrangements

All home games this season will take place on Pad B at Lee Valley Ice Centre. They will face off at 5:30pm with doors opening at 5pm. We have been advised that spectator parking will be NOT be available in the rink car park. You can get to the rink via train (closest stations are Clapton and Lea Bridge) or the number 55 or 56 buses. 
The advice from Lee Valley Ice Centre to spectators regarding parking is: “If you do wish to drive, you can park at Westfield Stratford City and catch a train – Lea Bridge is one stop from Stratford.”
