Lee Valley mark 30 years of ice hockey
Lee Valley Lions will be celebrating 30 years of ice hockey on a special night on Saturday week (August 30).
The current squad will take on a team made up of former players from the 1980s, 90s and the reformed side of 2005 to mark the club’s anniversary.
And fans are urged to come out and see their heroes from the past one more time, with tickets priced at just £6 for adults, £3 concessions (seniors, children and students) and £15 for a family ticket.
Names revealed so far include Tari Suwari, Gary Dodds, Jon Beckett, Adam Goldstone, Jim Graves and Simon Wren, some of whom return to ‘The Den’ for the first time since the original team folded in 1995.
More players are set to be announced over the next few days, with a full list available by the start of next week.
Lions do not begin their new National League Division Two campaign until October 11 with a trip to Chelmsford Warriors.
Haringey, Invicta, Peterborough and Slough are also in their group this season, with Lions having lost 8-4 to Haringey in the inaugural Richards Cup last month.
The club also ices junior teams at under-10, under-12, under-14, under-16 and under-18 level, with matches due to begin next month.
