STAR DEFENCEMAN ON HIS WAY BACK - ERIC WERNER TO RETURN

The GMB Nottingham Panthers are pleased to announce that Eric Werner has agreed terms to return to the club for a second season

Eric played a massive part in last year's Grand Slam success and was high on coach Corey Neilson's wish list for the new campaign

Werner picked up a host of accolades last term and in the book "The Year of the Panthers" which is launched on August 11th at Virgin Active, Neilson and assistant coach Rick Strachan reveal they can hardly remember a bad shift let alone a bad game from him

His return means half of last year's successful line up will be back. Said Neilson:"That's a very strong core of quality guys who know exactly what it takes to win. Along with the new faces we have an exciting looking line-up

"I like what I see on paper and we will be doing everything we can to deliver on the ice - again!"

Fans get their first chance to see the new Nottingham line-up when top French side Amiens visit the Capital FM Arena on August 30th.
