Sin-Hidge and Glover both return to the green and blue for a third term, after both joining the side from the now defunct Haringey Racers midway through the 2015/16 season.

Forward Sin-Hidge only iced five times as a Lion to finish that season, but then went on to be the team’s second highest points scorer, notching 18 points from 17 league games last term and now looking forward to the season and the new challenges.

The 26-year-old said: “I’m excited to get back on the ice with the Lions this season.

“Last season was my first full season with the team are a great bunch of guys.

“The new league presents a fresh and needed challenge that will force us to step up and continue to build on last years improvements.”

Nottingham-born utility man Glover also returns to the line-up and is keen to take on new challenges this coming season.

The 29-year-old said: “I am really looking forward to the new season and very happy to be signing for the Lions again.

“The new league structure will make things very exciting this year.”

Coach George Alley added: “Both players have bought in to what the team is about.

“Neither are local to the club but both guys really bought in to the dressing room atmosphere and it showed in their improved performances this season.

“Ross’ performances really stood out, at the turn of the year he really hit a purple patch and made a massive contribution to our results in the second half of the season.

“He’s one of a few roller players who are transitioning in ice hockey and I hope the way they play the game will add a new dimension to how we take the club forward.

“Ollie was one of the most committed players throughout the year, he only missed one league game and played latter stages of the season with a stress fractured leg.”

Alley also admitted those guys will be important for the league transition.

“In what will be a tough and demanding season on the team, having guys that will be there regardless is important to keeping the team together, and re-building it in the seasons ahead.”
