Following the conclusion of the NIHL Southern Cup Final we would like to issue the following statement.
Firstly, we offer our congratulations to deserved winners Streatham IHC on claiming the first silverware of the season after two strong performances.
Obviously this is not the outcome that we as a club were hoping for. We knew we would have to be at our best to compete for the trophy and coming into the weekend so shortbenched due to injuries, covid related issues and suspensions was not where we wanted to be.
The players available to play have given their all in both games and there will be tired bodies on our team this evening. We are grateful for the effort they demonstrated across the weekend and proud of the spirit they bring to our jersey.
Most importantly we would like to thank you, our supporters, for your fantastic backing both home and away in the face of such adversity. You continue to inspire us and we are hugely grateful to have you with us every time we take to the ice. With your continued backing we will bounce back and return stronger.
We look forward to providing tougher opposition for the remaining silverware in 2021/22.
