Last night Lions of the past, present and future came together for the Lee Valley Legends game. It was a close-fought contest with the current team nipping ahead to become the 7-5 victors. It was great to see so many familiar old faces yesterday and a massive thank-you must go to George Alley, who masterminded the whole thing – not forgetting, of course, all the players who took part and everyone off-ice whose work and dedication went into organising such a great evening’s entertainment.
It felt strange for me, coming back to the Den without a camera in my hand for the first time in many years. My successor, Pat Ayling, took lots of great photos last night, the first of which is a photos of the teams together, which can be seen here. In the meantime, I’ve posted a few shots taken by Lola Cook (a member of the Cook family who played such a big part in helping out the original Lions – Mike, Ena, Peter and Julie) and used with kind permission. You can see them here.
