A Thanks To You All


Where do we start?

What a season it has been!!! We competed in five different tournaments, winning two, the SNL Play Offs and the Northern League. We just came up short in the SNL league title race and we were runners-up in both the Scottish Cup and Northern Challenge Cup. Overall, it has been a very successful season on the ice we are sure you will all agree.

Head Coach Steven Lynch and his players along with his backroom staff have worked tirelessly to bring success to this club. That Play Off weekend will live in our memories for a long time to come.

On behalf of the club, we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all our off ice volunteers who work hard week in and week out throughout the season. You have all played a major part this campaign. There are so many people to mention so here goes…

To Fiona Henderson and Joanne Gallacher who work tirelessly in the Merchandise Kiosk every home game. To the Supporters Club for arranging various events throughout the season and dealing with the travel to away games. To the match night off-ice officials – timekeepers & scorers, Gill MacDiarmid, Mike Stewart, Alan Craig, and to those who jumped in to cover. Both goal judges, Dougie Rawlings and Shaun Cowan. To Liz Neil and the box office staff. To the stewards and rink staff in the cafe and bar. To Jim & Chips entertaining us with music and dancing each week from their DJ box. To the amazing Pawz the Lion, by far the best mascot in the league. To Kelly Bertram selling the 50/50 and Shirt Raffle tickets.

To our media team – KT Glitz for running the club website, Helen O’Neill for the amazing club graphics and bringing any ideas Easty comes up with to life. To Easty for running our social media pages. We hope they have been informative, fun, and humorous. We are sure you will all agree the content has been superb once again.

To Ian Coyle and Mark Brown without a doubt two of the best photographers around. Giving us the chance to relive all the memories we witness here in the Lion’s Den. To Mark McCabe for filming every home game so we have the footage to post those great goals and moments.

To Ian Mizen for compiling the Match Programme and spending endless hours putting stats together to fill the pages. To Julie Paterson who kept record of all the Caps player individual stats for the season.

To each and every one of our sponsors. Our headline sponsor IME DJK Group, Geared App, Dizzyfish, Proximo 3, PJ Green, DWJ Law, LB Painting and Decorating Services, Tailford Meats, Install Oil, Henderson Tiling and NB Flooring & Joinery Contractors. We appreciate every one of you for your support and we are proud to wear your logos on our jerseys. Also, a shout out to our rink-side advertisers and on-ice advertisers.

To the ice technicians with a special mention to Joe Daly and Martin Morris. To David Hughes and the first aid crew. To ‘Mr. Fix It’ John Fairley, no job ever too big for him.

Finally to you the fans!! Each week the Lion’s Den has been rocking thanks to you all. The fanbase has grown more and more through the season and to see the crowds at the Play Off Final and the Scottish Cup Final was simply spectacular.

We will continue to try make your match night experience a night to remember and there are plenty plans in the pipeline. We hope you all have a great summer. Stay tuned to our social media pages to hear of all things Capitals from player signings to season ticket news.

It seems a long time away but September will be here before you know it.
