Additional Comments:

This was the last home match of the Lions’ first ever season. On 3rd June there was an “End of Season Get Together” at Picketts Lock, with the presentation of player awards. Tickets were just £1.50! Here’s what the match programme had to say for this game…

“Welcome to our last home match of the season against our London rivals, Streatham Bruins. We hope to give a good account of ourselves and we know our South London neighbours will be out for revenge, remembering their home ice defeat earlier this year.

“Last week’s victory against a mixed Richmond team was a safe win by the Lions, taking the first two periods comfortably, and resting Gordon and Wurthman in the third which we narrowly lost. However, the Gordon/Sandford partnership is shaping well, too late for this season but not for next. Just for the record, Lions are now the last team playing in Great Britain so to hold up against many guest players and varied teams says a lot for Geoff and the boys. (not too sure what this sentence meant!)

“Note for your diary – it is no longer permitted for imports to be goalies, so this important step will mean that English goalies will come into their own.”

As Vesa Pennanen would soon be joining the Lions’ rank it is clear that this decision was later reversed.

Referee was Lane, Linesmen were Cotter and Johnson
