Exciting Tanaka joins MKL Forwards

Speedy Canadian-born forward Cale Tanaka adds to MKL offensive threat MILTON KEYNES, 20 July 2019: In a strong addition to the Smith Recycling Milton Keynes Lightning roster, experienced forward Cale Tanaka has made the move south to MK after a season with Solway Sharks where he was second top scorer with 56 points in 34 games. Prior to that, Cale spent 6 seasons in the EIHL with four teams scoring 57 goals and 155 points. 33 year old Cale was born in Stouffville, Canada and his mother is Scottish. He holds a UK passport and has played here for more than two seasons so he is classified as an UK player for our team. This is a huge advantage for us as Cliff explains: “With the change in classification of what classes as a British player or an import, I started investigating who was still available who fitted the new rules as I hadn’t completed my roster yet, as soon as Cale’s name came [...]

Introducing Zeus

Greek King of Lightning (Thunder, Gods and Mortals too) Greek King of Lightning (Thunder, Gods and Mortals too) You may be wondering about the gentleman in the new MK Lightning logo. May we introduce you to Zeus, a Greek god and the “Father of Gods and men” - a sky god who controlled lightning and thunder. Zeus was king of Mount Olympus, the home of Greek gods, ruling other gods as well as us mere mortals. In his role as king of the gods, Zeus was respected by all. Mortal kings would often boast that they were descendants of him. Zeus was also referred to as the “Lord of Justice”. Hesiod’s poem “Works and Days” (written around 700BC) described Zeus as a god who loved to laugh out loud. He was regarded as a wise god - fair, merciful, and prudent. He could also be unpredictable. If angered, he could be destructive, hurling lightning or thunderbolts to earth and creating huge storms. His appearance is normally described as strong [...]
