"This is the moment, it's Archer to Guptill, 2 to win! Guptill's going to push for 2 they've got to go! He's got to go to the keeper's end! He's got it!!! England have won the World Cup! By the barest of margins! By the barest of all margins!"
"It's come away, for the Panthers to Matt Francis who buries it high glove! The Nottingham Panthers have won the League! It's been 57 years, they have waited and waited but the Nottingham Panthers return to the pinnacle of British Ice Hockey!"
RIP Russ, all my love and strength to everyone left behind - I am so proud to have known you, proud that you were a fellow Stokie. Just everything a Stokie should be, the very best of what we can aspire to be.
I would love to see the club commemorate Russ's work and his name in some way.
Wow didn't realise the minutes applause was for russ first read this thread ages ago and thought how wonderful a man can be so my heart goes out to his family but his legacy will carry on with russ rules rip.
Known Russ (statto) for almost 30 years and used to stand in the boothen end at the Vic with him. So many great memories of being Mark Stein on the school playground recreating the previous weekend. There wasn't much he didn't know about stoke and football in general. Will be sadly missed. Rip mate x
