My understanding was that there was no ice plant going in to Wembley?

London really needs two teams - one North of the river, one South.

Play on the rivalry! The city is essentially made up of a number of boroughs; neither the Knights nor Racers ever truly galvanised the local populous enough to make a serious go of EIHL hockey (the Knights had success in the ISL, but not enough for their owners to want to stick around when the Superleague died)

The problem is, no new facilities of a sufficient standard are in the pipeline - Streatham only got a new rink through Lambeth Council playing hard ball with Tesco!
