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
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.
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 😉
