50 years since first game in Altrincham

The Altrincham Aces first appeared on the British ice hockey scene on 4 February 1961, a large home crowd of 2500 witnessing a 9-5 defeat by the Glasgow Flyers. British ice hockey had just seen the failure of the British League and ice hockey survived in several tournaments or series of challenge matches. The team put together by rink manager, Ken Bailey, in the early years included some of the best players in the country including Canadians Chick Zamick (a Nottingham Panthers legend) and Art Hodgins (the Aces first player-coach) (both are now in the British Ice Hockey Hall of Fame) and GB players Terry Matthews (also a Hall of Famer), Dave Lammin, Derek Metcalfe, Ian Forbes, Sam McDonald, Bert Smith, Mike Jordan and Ian Dobson.

Hi Rick. I'm doing next week's Metros programme (26th Feb) and would like to use some of this for the "Nippers Notes" page - the introductory piece on page 2. I would of course acknowledge you as the source and link it back to the Ace's site. Is this okay with you? Is there some way I can get a copy of the finished programme over to you?

Thanks,

Russ

I'm also going to use a few sections from the article in the e-zine if that's ok? Acknowledged of course!
