Dixon: Flames’ success ‘very special’

Guildford boss Paul Dixon has described the Flames’ double success as a ‘very special’ achievement by the club.

Sunday’s 6-2 victory against MK Lightning secured the EPL play-off title to add to the EPL Cup Flames won back in March.

Dixon said: “It’s a pretty emotional ending to the season for this team. There were a lot of changes this year to start the season, and then we made significant mid-season moves because we were not where we needed to be.

“Despite all our talent, there was a time just a few months ago when things were not looking good for collecting a trophy.

“I know the guys have a lot of pride, and there is a feeling of real achievement, and maybe even a bit of relief, that they were able to take advantage of the quality of the team they were part of.

“They can go into the off-season knowing they were able to pull it all together and complete only the fifth multi-trophy season in the club’s history.

“It goes down as a very special season for this club, and it is a result of each and every guy in our locker room.”
