Double blow for Sheffield Steelers.

Double blow for Sheffield Steelers.

Robert Newbolt04 Oct 2018Robert Newbolt»

In just 3 days Sheffield Steelers lost a coach and a player.


On Monday Sheffield Steelers of the EIHL parted company with their Head Coach Paul Thompson, citing personal reasons for his departure.

He had been with the Steelers since April 2015 after a spell in Sweden with Troja-Ljungby of the Allvenskaren and later Aalborg Pirates of the Danish Metal Ligaen.

He had gone to Sweden after a successful spell in Coventry of the EIHL where he lifted multiple trophies (EIHL title 3 times; Challenge CUP title twice; play off championship).

With Sheffield he won the league and the play offs, taking them into Europe three times.

However, this season did not start brightly and the loss of two players and poor form throughout September naturally raised questions about the quality of recruitment.

After a loss at the hands of his old club Coventry it was apparent that he

was becoming increasingly frustrated and he decided to call it a day.

But today assistant player-coach Mark Matheson, now in charge was hit by the news that new young signing Ryan Martindale had decided to leave for personal reasons.
