Hi all This is my first post on this site, and Ive read every post. Its great to read posts about the early Panthers years. I played hockey in Nottingham during the eighties when the Panthers returned to the Ice Stadium. There was no Junior team as such just myself, Nicky Balchin (his dad was Malcolm, the general manager then) and some kid from Canada called Randall . Anyway the team developed and I made great Friends including Randall, Garry Rippingale, Nigel Rhodes, Simon Hunt and many others. We were the original Tigers, and cougars as we got older. I could go on all day, but wont. Anyway I hope I can contribute to this forum as I did spent my whole teenage life around the Panthers and Hockey in Nottingham.
