Huge testament to the perseverance of the human spirit. Telford Tigers forward Michael Clancy was named to Team England for the upcoming "Curtain-Raiser" game vs Scotland.

Clancy suffered a serious car crash at the beginning of the year which kept him off the ice until March 25th, when he managed to return to play 4 games at U18 level and help the team qualify for the National Finals, en route defeating both OHA and Billingham to win the National Championship.
