Opportunity for import defenceman
to make an impression at MK Thunder
Keynes Thunder ice hockey club is looking to sign a non British-trained
defenceman to play for the team in their 2014-15 campaign at the
refurbished Planet Ice Arena. The Thunder is an established team
playing in the top division of the National Ice Hockey League (South),
and recently made a statement of intent for the season ahead with the
impressive signing of experienced English Premier League netminder
rules allow a maximum of two ‘import’ players, with these roles crucial
to the success of the team; MK Thunder are searching for a skilled
defenceman who can not only command the defensive zone but also play a
vital role in helping develop younger skaters who are beginning their
senior career at the MK Ice Hockey Academy (MKIHA).
Milton Keynes Thunder was recently announced as a key element of the
newly-formed MKIHA, and will be coached in the 2014-15 season by Paul
Gore and Sam Fairhurst. As part of the Academy, Thunder benefits from
close links with Milton Keynes Lightning - the town’s established
English Premier League side - so this opening represents a fantastic
opportunity for an ambitious young defenceman to prove their ability and
get noticed by both Premier and potentially Elite League coaches.
Applicants must live within easy travelling distance of Milton Keynes and
have gained experience from playing in European leagues. Applications
will also be considered from non EU players who hold a dual nationality
or have a British ancestry stamp in their passport.
To be considered for this exciting
opportunity, players should email their hockey CV to MK Thunder’s
manager Dave Fairhurst at firstname.lastname@example.org,
as soon as possible.
