Having taken a sabbatical since last November  from her role as Milton Keynes Ice Hockey Club CEO, we are sad to share that Claire Eason-Bassett has now stepped down from her role for personal reasons.  Day to day operations of the club will continue under the leadership of Tom, Jon and Cliff as it has since the start of Claire’s period of leave.  There is no change to shareholding or ownership of the Club or its company structure.

Claire was instrumental in forming the Let’s Play Hockey initiative, and gathering support for the original bid to continue life as an Elite League club, before working with the board to take the club into its current NIHL National operation.  She worked tirelessly to restore key local relationships and to help Cliff build the side that takes to the ice each week.

As a Board, we would like to place on record our thanks and appreciation for all Claire has done.  She remains a friend of us, and a friend of the club, and we hope that we will be able to work together again in the future.

As the club has been operating for a couple of months with Claire having stepped back, we will continue business-as-usual and look forward to the continued success of the club on and off the ice.

Thank you Claire, and all the best for the future.
