"I am very proud to have a testimonial match and I am really looking forward to seeing so many people who have helped me throughout my career in the UK. I have been lucky to play for some great clubs in great cities here in the UK including Newcastle, Sheffield and Manchester and I look forward to suiting up with some familiar faces who I am sure the fans will be happy to see and also the fans themselves who have been great to me over the years. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to have played Ice Hockey professionally and have thoroughly enjoyed my time with all clubs in the UK and I look forward to moving forward with the Vipers here in the North East" Tickets available from Vipers Hockey, 16 Shakespeare Street, Newcastle, at the sales desk in the arena foyer on match nights, Tel: 0191 261 0909
