Good evening and welcome back to the Hangar for the first real game of the season and they don’t come much tougher than the reigning League and Cup champions, the Guildford Flames. We have quite a young team, with plenty of development for the future, at the other end of the scale to the Flames who I would describe as a veteran team. Just like happened to the great Aussie cricket team so many of the Flames stars will be going in the near future together so perhaps this is a twilight season for the Flames with the probability of major overhaul next summer regardless of success or not this season? For us we might not be favourites for the league title but Slava has a team in place with a perfect balance between developing youth and experience to lead the way.
Last weekend we had the Sky TV Community Channel with us filming for a project they’ll be showing either just before or after Christmas. It was great to see the positive atmosphere last weekend, good to hear the noise and I’m told that the filming has gone well and the footage is good. We know the Flames fans are great supporters of their team so I’m hoping you’ll be in even better voice this week ready to cheer on the mighty Slough Jets in their first league outing.
Enjoy your night and don’t forget to check out the food/drink offers and get skating after the game!
My team, your team, OUR TEAM
