Rick Strachan back for next season

The deals to keep the UK's top coaching team together at the grand slam winning GMB Nottingham Panthers are now both complete.

Rick Strachan will again be joining head coach Corey Neilson behind the bench and through the week at training.

Corey Neilson said today : "Rick does a great job for us and I wanted him back, in fact he's going to be around even more next season and that can only help us."

Meanwhile recruitment work for next season continues. Corey left the auction last night and went straight to his office to continue negotiations with players. There's no news yet but he believes he is getting closer to making an announcement.
