Steelers head coach Aaron Fox couldn’t be happier that he is getting back to work following todays announcement of an Elite Series of games against Coventry Blaze, Manchester Storm …….. and the Nottingham Panthers.
“I’m so excited” he said “This has come at just the right time, 12 months since we played our last game winning the Challenge Cup
“I’ve already made contacts with lots of players both here in Sheffield and overseas. We won’t have an issue filling our roster that’s for sure.
“I’m guessing that the team will be made up from existing Steelers players that we were hoping to bring back this season together with others from around the Country, Europe and North America.
“Some leagues are coming to an end in Europe and many players will be looking to bolt an an extra five weeks of hockey. Some others might not have played at all this season and will be looking to showcase themselves ahead of next year.
“It’s exciting times for sure and we are throwing ourselves into this series with maximum effort”
