Lightning look forward to action-packed opening weekend
MK Lightning's Assistant Coach Lewis Clifford says the team’s tough opening weekend to the 2012-13 English Premier League campaign will help them as they begin a season with a roster which has undergone significant changes - but which is determined to end a two-season silverware drought. New signings include Adam Calder, Nick Chinn, Stephen Wall, Dan Harris, Chris Wiggins and Jordan Hedley, and the club has, significantly, been able to retain the services of key players including Blaz Emersic, Alex Mettam and also Lukas Zatopek – widely regarded as one of the best defencemen in the league.
