Weekly teams up with ice hockey club to launch new show

A weekly newspaper has launched a new ice hockey night which it hopes will become a regular event.

The Fife Free Press has teamed up with the Fife Flyers to launch The Hockey Show, which features a number of players on stage talking about their careers and their lives.

The night was hosted by broadcaster Ali McLaren, who hosts the club’s Flyers Live chats on Facebook, FFP editor Allan Crow and Flyers forward Bari Mckenzie.

The plan is to make the night a regular part of the season.

Ali said: “Flyers have a great hockey community and I’ve been wanting to find new ways to get the players and fans together.

“Flyers Live is a great online show but there’s nothing better than getting everyone in the same room and having a proper conversation.

“Allan and I are the hosts but we want everyone to be involved. We want to see the real personalities of the guys we see on the ice each weekend.”
