Whilst the Flames will have to sit out of any action on Saturday night, the game at the Spectrum on Sunday marks the first of 4 games over an 8 day period. It also marks the first league game of the season for the Flames, and sees the return of the Sheffield Steelers, who very much made their mark against the Surrey side last season.
This weekend the Flames are in Challenge Cup action against the Coventry Blaze in a double header, starting at the Guildford Spectrum Saturday evening.
Pre-season was over in a flash for Guildford. It was just 1 weekend – A weekend which was far from perfect, but a weekend where the new signings showed what they can do.
Welcome to the Guildford Flames Legends series. A series which will put the spotlight back onto the great players which formed such a vital part of the history of the club. Players who created many special moments on ice and players who helped build the infrastructure of the club; Cult heroes, championship winners – The very players who we think about when the “good ol’ days” are discussed.
The dust has fully settled on the first weekend of pre-season games after a long summer for Cardiff, Nottingham and Sheffield fans and this evening the next round of games get underway; but for supporters of the Guildford Flames, the wait continues.
