Club Statement | Weekend Review

First and foremost the club would like to thank the fans for their continued support. Although it’s very early days and we’re just a handful of home games into the season, it’s been a tough start and we understand the concerns from the fan base.

After Saturdays convincing 5-0 victory over Fife Flyers at the Storm Shelter we had hoped that could be a turning point for our group, but after suffering a heavy defeat against Fife Flyers in Kirkaldy last night, we would like our fans to understand that we will not sit back and we will not accept that level of performance here in Manchester, we expect much more from the team we have put together.

As we always have, we will act quickly to make any adjustments needed, but we also understand it is a strangely quiet market for players and must be patient to make sure we find the correct pieces to ensure we are competitive every night. The management team are working tirelessly to improve and move this team forwards as fast as possible and now we must prepare accordingly for what is a very important week. A maximum of SIX league points are available, with four of them on the table at the Storm Shelter.

Head Coach Ryan Finnerty commented; “After a great team performance on Saturday, to show up like we did Sunday was extremely disappointing.  You can not take a night off in this league and expect to have any success.  We pride ourselves on being a team that’s hard to play against and right now we couldn’t be further from that position.  The focus now turns to see how we respond as team this week.  We are extremely active in the open  market and will not hesitate to improve this team.”

Thursday 21st October at the Storm Shelter we take on Omar Pacha and the Dundee Stars (7PM face-off) and Saturday 23rd October we’re at home once again taking on a star studded Belfast Giants side (7PM face-off).
