Fife Flyers are set to keep faith with the same coaching duo for next season’s Elite League campaign.

Todd Dutiaume is returning as head coach, while the Press understands that his number two, associate player-coach Danny Stewart, will also retain his position, although this has yet to be confirmed by the club.

Flyers are due to make a signing announcement tomorrow (Friday).

In an in-depth interview with the Fife Free Press, Dutiaume spoke honestly of the failings last season - and his plans going ahead.

It will be his 18th season with the club since signing from Telford Tigers.

Dutes and Danny have been coaching partners at Fife since January 2012, when Stewart was promoted from club captain to assistant player-coach following the departure of Matt Siddall.

The pair have taken the club into the end of season play-offs three years running, reaching the semis in April 2014.

Last season’s hopes of challenging for silverware didn’t materialise as the team struggled to find consistency.
