Fife Flyers depart the ice for the very last time as the curtain falls on their 75th anniversary season.

They signed off at the EIHL play-off finals weekend at Manchester which attracted huge crowds - including a large travelling support from the Kingdom.

It was Flyers’ first appearance at the showcase event since joining the league three seasons ago, and underlined their return to top flight hockey.

In a thrilling first-semi-final they faced league champions Belfast Giants and pushed them all the way only to lose 1-0.

That meant a Sunday lunchtime third place play-off against fellow scots Braehead Clan which ended 6-6 with Clan grabbing a winner in sudden death overtime.
