Mike Landers: Born on 14th July 1973, I share a birthday with Napoleon and Julius Caeser. This explains a lot about my megalomaniacal tendencies. I followed hockey in the North West for nigh on seven years now and fail to convince people that I have a life away from it. I work for Stockport Council, in charge of maintaining the schools management systems throughout the area. Away from
the ice, I enjoy cinema (the films of John Carpenter especially), heavy rock music (Metallica, White Zombie and er... The Levellers), stand-up comedy (Mark Thomas, Bill Hicks) and a mix of the two (Mark Radcliffe and the Boy Lard). Can often been seen headbanging like a loon in Rockworld in Manchester. I have an ambitions of one day being a normal member of society but until then, send emails to email@example.com

Eternal (hence the link to the pic.). Able to skate a little, also enjoy walking, swimming and table-tennis."

Grew up in Reigate, Surrey and did a Tri-Lingual Secretarial and Business Studies course at the Polytechnic of Central London, followed by two years working in Brussels. Married with two sons (13 and 9) who both play hockey ..... the field variety!! .... the elder one having been selected for North-East England. Moved from the South-East (between Bracknell and Basingstoke but hadn't heard of hockey
in those days!!) eight years ago and have been a supporter of the Sheffield Steelers since half way through their first season. As for a job .... well, let's say, housewife, mother and superstar, although I do some freelance work whenever I can !! Was jointly responsible for
setting up ukh. Have just acquired two new additions to the family ..... a couple of 12 week old kittens !!! Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Phil Hignett: Lives seven miles north of the hallowed ice that is the Centrum, home of the Eagles! First introduced to Ice Hockey in what was West Germany in
1977. Married to Nicky, another Eagles fan and we have two kids and a cat. Having spent over twelve years in IT, my interests after Ice Hockey are computers. Oh, I've also a member of my daughters school PTA for three years, which is also where Angelo Catenaro's children attend. email: email@example.com
Mark Grayson Wood: Storm supporter and all round good fella(!). Born in Guernsey (Channel Islands) of Manchester parents and started watching rec hockey at Altrincham when my brother Martin "Woody" played for Altrincham Eagles. Progressed from there to watching the Metros (Ugh) and then the Storm. Woody (the other one) now works at the arena on match nights as a penalty box attendant and sometimes away team gofer. That explains the free tickets (sometimes). He also admits to teaching Lighting Jack to skate! Work wise I am a marketing analyst for Leeds Metropolitan University working in new high technology business start ups after an industry career (if thats what you can call it) with GEC. Aged 33 and on match nights can be found behind Block 103 in the intervals. Best UK hockey game - beating Steelers on their ice for the first time. Best overseas hockey game - Las Vegas Thunder v Houston Aeros - That man Morrissette spent half an hour in the bin before getting game.
