We have a game lined up with the folk from up the road, due to their level of expertise this game will be used to give the inexperienced guys in the Knights team some game time.
Myself and Kev will be playing on the 3rd line to make sure everything goes according to plan and the rest of the 3rd line will be made up of players who have attended the most training sessions.
The 1st line will be matched with their 1st line and 2nd line so on and so forth. It will hopefully give those on those lines a game against players of similar ability and experience. One thing to bear in mind is that the Stix aren't registered so if anything happens during the game you won't be covered. We will have a L2 coach (or more around) and the game will be non-checking so don't worry on that count. It will be friendly and played in good spirits with me knowing their players very well, so it will be a good chance to have fun.
There will be a game in Nottingham and the provisional date offered by the NIC is 13th June which is a Friday. The slot is 8pm - 10pm. If anyone on the team list can't make the slot, let me know via PM or see me on Sunday so we can sort cover. We will be wearing our white uniforms as we all have them, Stix will be playing in black.

I think the point Teddy is getting at Martin is we have turned down perfectly good games when it would have been easier to accept them. As a result he has paid money and bought into the team but still has no prospect of any games as things stand.
I have no problem with Kev playing. Hes trained every week, hasnt had a great deal of experience and it is his call. All iv said to Kev is we need to be taking up chances this time of year because come September we will be rueing missed opportunities when the leagues start up again which im sure Kev has taken on board
My point was that its now mid june, we have already said no to Preds, we have been training since January and had 2 'freindly' games vs Stix and Vipers and nothing else. I say no games till next may cos at this rate we might get 1 or 2 proper games in up to september, then your lucky to get a game or 2 up till regular season ends.
Rich said it there.... sums it up really
(edite dafter rob called me and explained it all, fair enough)
I have explained to Ted how I chose the teams and everything is fine. I expected that some players wouldn't be able to make it and on this basis I expected some to fill in like Ted and he is happy to do that.
Also Jay, can you make it?
Here's the updated team list...with people who have confirmed they can play in green.
im in, on D will be a challenge but one im well up for. Been playin on D for the past few scrims so will be good to do it in a game. Dont see why people are argueing over games. Give it time, im sure Kev etc are working on games that they want us to play in, im in this for ice time, weather that comes through training or games ill take it as it comes.
good luck guys. should be a good match against some experiance players at the stix.
would have been nice to play against the stix after playing with them for abit.
luck forward to hearing up and coming games.
Peter, sorry mate. I thought you was away for this game, got my dates mixed up. Are you here for the game then? If so, I will make you the next in line should we have anymore drop out.
Johnson - Don't feel any pressure though, this is just a friendly. I want you to have fun first and this game really will be about having fun. If we win, we win, if not, just have a laugh. We will save the serious stuff for the competetive games.
