    Brilliant book which I am slowly getting through. I know Martin well and it was he who helped me get into my book collection.
    Many years into watching the sport I wrote a few lines with statistics in as regards my local team the Nottingham Panthers and then a book on Great Britains National tournaments. A heavy ask as finding factual information is difficult unless you are a fountain of knowledge like these two authors.
    I did however write this book in 2010 and it did have a player register (just total stats of games, goals, assists, points and penalties taken) in it. An all-time list of all the players that donned the GB shirt. Facts sent to me by the IIHF.

    This massive piece of work goes further in pictures and the written word and is a book documenting what is needed for posterity.
