Forward Matthew Myers has been granted a testimonial season by The Nottingham Panthers.

The 37-year-old is in his 11th season with the Panthers and was Head Coach Gary Graham's first signing for the 2022-23 campaign.

His first spell in Nottingham from 2004 to 2009 was followed by a three-year stint between 2010 and 2013.

Myers also spent the 2015-16 season with the Panthers before returning again in 2021.

The Cardiff-born forward has helped Nottingham win five playoff championships, five Challenge Cup trophies, as well as the much-coveted Elite League title in 2013.

Myers, who was appointed Panthers captain following a vote by his team-mates this season, said: "It's awesome, I've been part of the organisation for a long time.

"It's a real honour to be granted a testimonial and I can only thank the club for that. I love the city of Nottingham and the people, I just love it here.

"We will have a game as the main event and a dinner - and there will be a quiz night to open the testimonial season, as well as a few other things.

"We are just working on dates and will have them confirmed as soon as possible."

Myers is one of the most decorated and experienced players in this country and is one of only five Great Britain players to pass 100 caps

Panthers CEO, Omar Pacha, said: "Matthew has been a huge part of this club's history since he first joined in 2004.

"He fully deserves his testimonial season for the Panthers for all he has given to the club.

"It was no surprise when his team-mates selected him as captain as he is not only leader on the ice but off it as well."
