Thank You Simon Jones!

Yesterday’s game was the last in the career of our captain #16 Simon Jones, as he hangs up his skates at the end of the season.

Simon joined the Lions in 2015 and has been a stalwart of the team ever since, playing 8 seasons with the team – the last 5 of those as captain.

His 143 regular season games played for the Lions puts Simon 10th on the club’s all-time appearances list, and he played over 160 games for the club in total.

Happy retirement Simon and thanks for all you’ve done for the club over the past 9 years!

Further Fixture Updates

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:

Home Game Update

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.

Attendee Information: Haringey home game on Sunday 24th September

We’ve been instructed by Lee Valley Ice Centre that if we promote reservations to the game online, we will face considerable increases in ice hire costs.

We can only allow 100 spectators on a first come first served basis upon arrival to the ice rink. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.

We have processed refunds for anyone who already purchased a ticket online via Eventbrite.

We are very sad that the introduction of a new ice centre has meant we can no longer operate as we did prior to the original centre’s closure.
