Tigers to honour team at presentation night
Telford Tigers will honour this seasonâ€™s English Premier League squad at a glittering awards dinner, to be held at The Place Theatre in Oakengates onÂ Friday, April 8th.
The ceremony will include a sumptuous buffet, with dancingÂ afterwards.
Guests will also be treated to the first viewing of a film to mark 30 years of ice hockey in Telford, including memories from players and back-room staff from the last three decades.
Wayne Scholes, CEO of Tigers ownersÂ Red Hockey, wants the evening to be a celebration of a remarkable season â€“ and 30 years of ice hockey in the town.
He said: â€œThis year is notable for a number of reasons, but of course, the players who have fought it out all season deserve an evening to celebrate their hard work.
â€œI am proud of the guys that pull on a Tigers shirt every week. I am also proud of the fans who fill the stands, week in, week out. They deserve a good night out with the players, which is why weâ€™ll be having dancingÂ afterwards!
â€œI want this event to include something for everyone. The last 30 years of ice hockey in Telford hasÂ shaped many different lives, so I commissioned a film to mark the occasion.
â€œWe have been talking to some of the people who were part of the story, but havenâ€™t been seen in Telford for a long time. It will be a real trip down memory lane.â€
The club are alsoÂ selling sponsorship of the awards, with a number of corporateÂ entertainmentÂ packages now available.
Supporters will be invited to vote for selected awardsÂ at the final two home games of the season, via voting slips that will be handed out on the doors.
Mr. Scholes added: â€œIt is only right that we have as many Tigers supportersÂ at the ceremony as possible.
â€œWe want to celebrate a great season, but also look forward to an exciting future. Everyone at the Tigers has a part to play in making this club a key part of the British ice hockey scene.
â€œIÂ am certain it is going to be a memorable event, in more ways than one.â€
