News Article | 4th September 2007 » Scimitars roster completed
Scimitars Coach Neil Abel has finally secured the services of their fourth non - British trained player. After starting the past two seasons with only 3, they now can take to the ice knowing that they are on an even playing field with the other clubs in the English Premier League. The message has gone out that the Scimitars mean business and are looking to capitalize on their outstanding successes since joining the league two seasons ago.
Swedish born, Patrik Moberg joins the club after competing in the very competitive Swedish division 1, playing for EV Welden. Patrik is a 25 year old forward and shoots left. He averaged a point a game and shows great promise for the South Yorkshire outfit.
Coach Abel said upon his latest recruitment "This is a guy that I have been chasing for about a month. Back in Sweden he has played at a high standard and his agent speaks very highly of him. I hope that he will compliment Peter Slamiar's skills and they will link up well. He is a consistent scorer and gets points on the board; hopefully he will do the same for us. I am very pleased that he has signed for us and will bring that missing element to the squad. We kick off with two games this weekend away to Telford on Saturday and home to Swindon on Sunday both teams have been busy over the summer and Sunday will see the return of local lad Mikey Holland who left the Scimitars over the break."
Face off for the home game on Sunday is 17.30 with doors opening at 16.30.
