Murrayfield Racers are delighted to confirm that they will be entering the Scottish National League (SNL) this season.
The club plans to play the initial part of the campaign on the road, with Murrayfield Ice Rink not set to reopen until towards the end of the year.
Racers’ management spoke to the rink owner last week and have been informed that the facility will open once maintenance work has been completed.
Club director Willie Dunn said: “The last year and a half has been extremely stressful, but we are thrilled to announce that we’re back!
“We’ve had positive dialogue with the people behind the scenes at the rink and they are looking forward to getting things up-and-running once again.
“The players have been contacted about this latest development and we’re hoping to retain the bulk of the squad we announced last summer.
“Obviously playing away during the first part of the season is not ideal, but we feel it is manageable given the timeframe we’ve been given by the rink.
“On that basis, we urge all our fans to get behind us as much as possible. Please spread the word – the Racers are back again!”
