The Mustangs 2011/12 season gets underway with a double header weekend this coming Saturday 17 September the team has its first game, away at Lee Valley and then on Sunday 18 September against Peterborough Islanders at the Silver Blades Ice Rink, Gillingham.

There is some tough competition in ENL2 this year and with the retirement of last years captain, Kevin Lake, and with other players from previous years unable to commit to playing this year, the team is a much younger team than in recent years (sorry, Lakey Im not implying that you are old Wink !!). With 8 of the squad still under 19 (3 of whom are only 16), Coach Ali Rodger and the more experienced Mustangs, led by new captain Greg Hales, will be looking to guide the youngsters through an exciting season.

For any of you who are not travelling to Chelmsford on Sunday, come along and watch the Mustangs vs Islanders. F/O 17.15

It looks as if the following players from last season are not returning: K Lake (retired), AJ Boot, Laurence Billing, Matt Myers, James Fraser, Steve Grout (LV Lions), Martin Ryder (Madness). There were also few others who played a few games.

New players listed: James Tanner, Jack Hussey, Charlie Schofield, Danny Terry.

With the exception of Tanner, Rodger and Richard Smith (possibly), I think all the players listed played junior hockey in Gillingham - or came to the game as late starters in rec (Gutridge and Daubney) in Gillingham.

My guess at the average age is around 22-23 years, so about the same as the Dynamos. Its a good mixture of experience and youth, though.
