The Sheffield club won a £10,000 National Lottery Award in September due to public support and the  event provided a bit of early festive fun.  

The Steelkings were also joined by a special guest on the evening, Sheffield strongman, Phil '˜Titanium' Roberts, who was on hand for the ceremonial puck drop before the game started and to award the Player of the Game awards at the end.

Barry Grayson and Jake Oakley scored for Team Elf while Team Santa's marksman was Matthew Franklin
