STEELERS are celebrating a pre-season triumph - 1,000 season tickets have been snapped up already.
That’s a five year high, built on last season’s Elite League championship win and the recruitment of popular player coach Ryan Finnerty.
Yesterday, the Sheffield club celebrated their achievement by presenting flowers to the 1,000th ticket holder, Rachel Bennett, 25, of Ash Crescent, Eckington. It will be her first ever season as a full ST holder.
A friend introduced her to her first game just after Christmas in the 2009/10 season and Rachel says she became hooked on the entertainment and speed of the game. Her favourite last year was Neil Clark - although there is no news yet whether he will be retained. Rachel will see homegrown Tom Squires and Geoff Woolhouse in the squad again though; both have re-signed.
