Following a barnstorming opening night league win against the Belfast Giants, your Smith Recycling MK Lightning’s next challenge is when they face Braehead Clan at 7pm on Saturday 16 September.

This is the Clan’s eighth season in the top flight – last time around they finished fifth, just a single point behind the Nottingham Panthers.  Watch out for our full match preview coming later this week, to get you in the mood for this weekend’s match!

If you didn’t get a chance to pick up our new monthly magazine, Lightning Strike, last Sunday then it’ll be available this weekend too!  At just £3 it’s great value with player interviews and team features that you will NOT see anywhere else!

Saturday’s home game will be another chance to order your home, away, warm up or Challenge Cup replica jersey in this season’s brand new designs; prices have been held at last season’s levels but only until 30th September – get one with a current player’s name and number for £50 or personalised for £55. From 1st October the cost will be £55 and £60 respectively. Size samples are available to try on at the Supporters’ Club stand at rinkside, which is also where you place your order! If you’re a Gold member of the Supporters’ Club you get a 15% discount on all merchandise and if you’re a standard level member you get 10%. Not a member? Join while you’re at the merchandise stand!

There’ll be all the usual fund-raising fun including 50-50, the Funky Duckling Chuck-a-Duck, Shirt off his Back and Dubbsie’s Dabble – with all profits going direct to MKL to help meet ongoing running costs.
