We highly anticipate another showcase of British talent and we look forward to showing more of what British hockey has to offer.
“We say a big thank you to everyone that had made this happen once again, and we cannot wait to get going!”
Sheffield Scimitars head coach Steve Weeks added: “The team and I thoroughly enjoyed the North Cup and relished the opportunity to get back onto the ice. Additionally, it gave us the chance to begin the process of building our team for the coming season in a highly competitive series.
“We jumped at the chance to be involved in a further cup and the players are raring to go. It will be another good test and opportunity to build upon our work in the North Cup. We were really impressed with the support given last time out and hope people can tune in again for what will undoubtedly be another great series of games.”
Finally Nottingham Lions head coach Matt Bradbury said: “It’s great news that we can get back on the ice so soon after the North Cup! It’s another fantastic opportunity for our younger players at the Lions to further develop, whilst being helped and supported by our core of seniors who between them have a wealth of experience at many levels of British hockey.
“The first event saw a series of well-contested games showcasing some good talent, but above all showed that players can take part in competitive sport safely during a pandemic.
“Thank you to all at the EIHA for supporting teams to put in an infrastructure which allows us to play and good luck everyone who is taking part!”
