VIDEO: Moyer appreciates ‘classy’ banner tribute

Russ Moyer believes his old team Sheffield Steelers are one of the favourites to land the Elite League title again.

The Fife Flyers’ defenceman saw Steelers from close quarters last weekend, when he played against them with his new club Fife Flyers.

He told The Star: “They are a pretty solid team all round, they have always had good depth with four lines, which proved to be a positive, had a little more jump than we did.

“I think they’ve got a quality team and I am sure they will be the frontrunners in the League again.

‘‘Hopefully in the coming months we will be nipping at their heels for the championship. “

Moyer said it was nice for the club to allow him to witness last Saturday’s banner-raising. “It was a classy move, I appreciated that.”

After the banner wearing, though, he was “wearing white and blue, not orange.

“I am proud to be a Fife Flyer. I am happy for my time in Sheffield obviously but that was last year and this is this year.

‘‘It is definitely a year I will always look back on and enjoy, and the accomplishment with the 20 guys we had in the room.”
