LINE-UPS NAMED FOR MANCHESTER CHARITY GAME

The line-ups for Saturday’s fundraising game at Silver Blades Altrincham to raise money for victims of the Manchester Arena terrorist attack has been revealed.

Former GB player and coach Tony Hand – who is currently IHUK’s National Development Head Coach – and current Manchester Storm coach Ryan Finnerty will lead the two teams in a hotly-anticipated game.

All the proceeds from the game will go to the British Red Cross Manchester Fund.

The Manchester Bees will be a side made up of past and present Manchester Storm players, alongside former Manchester Phoenix players, and will be coached by Hand.

There are some great names in the Bees’ line-up, such as old Storm hero Mike Morin and former Phoenix crowd favourite Robin Kovar.

The All Stars side will be under the guidance of Finnerty with Mark Thomas and Jason Hewitt among the names on the roster, along with former Storm player Jonathan Weaver patrolling the blue line.
