“It’s with a sad heart that we have taken this decision but as a club we felt we had no alternative. Everyone who works alongside Ryan knows the effort he has put into trying to bring success back to this organisation and we are both thankful and grateful to him for that.

"As a club we have taken the decision to move on and not to re-new Ryan’s deal for next season. We are actively looking for an experienced head coach to come in and run the hockey side of this business.

“We again thank Ryan and wish him well in his future.”
