Last week saw Nottingham Lions’ jersey sponsors Frankie & Benny’s host the first ever Lions Media & Social Night.

Players and off-ice officials gathered at the Upper Parliament Street branch of the popular restaurant for a special evening involving staff and students from South Nottingham College alongside special guests Capital FM’s ‘Capital Breakfast’ show presenters Dino and Pete.

The gathering was designed to give students from South Nottingham College an opportunity to interview a selection of the Lions players and staff as part of their work for their Sports Media courses. Captain Luke Thomas, American import Luke Branin and Head Coach Matt Bradbury were among lucky few who were chosen for some post-food chat amidst friendly, bustling environment of the New York Italian Restaurant and Bar.

The special evening also gave the players and the off-ice team a chance to get together and socialise outside of their normal hockey routines as well as the opportunity to mingle with some of their other sponsors and partners from the likes of Ice Locker, Blue Bell Hill Trust and Frankie & Benny’s.

The Lions would like to thank Restaurant Manager Michelle Flowers and her team for all their hard work in making the evening such a success. You can visit their website for contact details, special offers and some great Christmas deals.
