Introducing our Remembrance Day Commemorations

Smith Recycling Milton Keynes Lightning together with the Supporters Club are delighted to share with you our plans to commemorate Remembrance Day 2019. On Saturday 9th November for the home game against Bracknell Bees, we will remember those who have fallen, pay our respects and support the Royal British Legion by wearing a special Remembrance jersey. These jerseys will be available through the own and loan scheme and will cost £125 each, and if there is demand we will produce a limited run for purchase as replicas. We have been working with the Royal British Legion this year to gain their support for our fundraising, and we are delighted to announce that all profits from the sale of Remembrance shirt, merchandise and other fundraising activities will be given 100% to the Royal British Legion for their Poppy Day appeal. This is how the Royal British Legion describes itself: “The Royal British Legion is at the heart of a national network that supports our Armed Forces [...]

Dean Skinns joins to provide cover

We're delighted that Dean Skinns has joined Smith Recycling Milton Keynes Lightning to provide some short term goaltending cover.  Jordan Lawday has picked up an injury and Dean will join us to provide injury cover on a game by game basis. Speaking about Dean's arrival, Smith Recycling MKL Head Coach Lewis Clifford said: "I'm really pleased that Dean has agreed to help us out on a short term basis.  Jordan has picked up a knock, and we want to make sure that we give him the time he needs to work it off.  Brandon Stones has been great in net this season but it's really important we have some quality in the backup.  Dean fits the bill perfectly." Dean has a distinguished hockey pedigree including a season in Milton Keynes in 2015/16 so he's no stranger to the fans and the club.  Welcome back Dean and thanks for your assistance!

Match Preview – Hull Pirates 14th September

Opponents: Hull Pirates Date: Saturday September 14th Key timings: Doors Open 18:00.  Warm-up 18:20.  Face-off 19:00  Tickets available here With our first pre-season weekend giving us plenty of encouragement on the ice, with some strong performances and work ethic, it's now behind us so time to look to our second set of warm-up matches. National Ice Hockey League play-off champions Hull Pirates promise to present a stiff test for Smith Recycling Milton Keynes Lightning when they visit Planet Ice for a pre-season challenge match on Saturday, writes Paul Brookman. Pirates beat Lightning’s local rivals, Peterborough Phantoms, with a Bobby Chamberlain overtime goal in the play-off final in April. Chamberlain is, of course a familiar name to MK supporters as he spent a season and a half here in the club’s English Premier League days.  Since then his career has mainly been with Pirates – having also played for the forerunner team, Hull Stingrays in their Elite League days. Hull have two new imports this [...]
