    I used to watch that as well. The finals used to be in London, it was quite a big thing back then.
    The only team I remember really well was Fife Flyers. I think there was Nottingham Panthers, and I seem to recall Belfast had a team. Can't really remember any of the others. Was Whitley Bay one?

    I seem to remember liking Luc Beausoleil towards the end of the time I was going and Paul Heavey could always be relied on for a scrap. I can vaguely remember going to the ice speedway at Murrayfield about 30 years ago too (not a patch on the outdoor version from mainland Europe).
    Yeah, wee Luc was a buzzbomb and a very good player. Paul was a total bruiser and very effective with it

    Jock Hay was a player my son and I dubbed "The Leaner" because his habit was to lean hard on the opposition player that had the puck. Different approach to Paul but very effective

    PS Apologies to anyone wondering why we're talking about Ice Hockey on a football forum. At least two of the players mentioned favoured Hibs
    This is how it feels

    Me and my pal used to go. Wed hang about outside dressing room to try and get sticks and pucks. Onve got Hilton Ruggles broken stick, was well chuffed!
    Hilton Ruggles-related fun fact of the day. When he was playing for Manchester Storm, I saw him feature as a 'warrior' in the short-lived ITV Saturday game show 'Ice Warriors' (think Gladiators on ice) when watching one of the shows being filmed at Manchester Arena.

    Dye in the wool Flyers fan. Watch the Storm now I'm in Manchester. I'll watch the Scottish teams when they come down but this is good deal. Go along and try it.

    Gosh, you must be as old as my mother.

    She still talks about Don Busch and Nebby Thrasher.

    We used to go in the 1970s, when Derek Riley was the main man.

    My second cousins are both goaltenders, one for the Flyers and the other for Swindon.

    They're also both Jambos, so I suspect having 6 fingers on each hand must help stopping the puck go in.

    It's a brilliant sport to watch live. Fast, big impact, you can get a beer between periods.

    Can you buy beer at the games or take any in? Not overly fussed but I'll take a bit of extra cash if I can buy a beer
    Yeah, you can go to the bar before the game and at the end of each period.

    Not a big fan of the game but I went to watch Sovsn Bratislava play St Petersburg about a year ago.
    There was a full house of some 11,000 which was about 10 times the crowd the football team got 2 days before. Every seat had a Slovan scarf on it and everyone stayed to the end even though St Petersburg won 6.0. All in all an enjoyable evening with cheap food and beer

    Really good offer big saving as someone else said further up. If anyone looking for something a bit different definitely worth it. I have a caps season ticket on a Sunday and one at ER the saturday. We got into it more as a family as my wee boy started playing for the murrrayfield juniors under 10 team and last season and loves it. Boo fife flyers 😉
