McGrattan training day at AJKM Hockey Barn
Big Ern was at the AJKM Hockey Barn in Ilkeston today for a special full day's training camp with youngsters from across the Midlands. The AJKM Hockey Barn is a purpose built training facility for youngsters with synthetic ice, lecture room, conditioning rooms and gym. Panthers' head coach Corey Neilson and players Henry Pacl and Ollie Betteridge were also at today's McGrattan day where the youngsters were split into two age groups. The event sold out, there are more evening camps planned shortly. Said Brian: "The kids' enthusiasm is fantastic and whilst it may not be real ice it's real training, I hope the kids learned a lot."
