Lightning’s new owners aiming high

Graham and Monica Moody say they have big plans for MK Lightning after taking control of the club ahead of their first season in the Elite League.

The pair currently own a print management business and marketing consultancy in Coventry, while Graham is also a Director for 2017 Southern Premier League play-off and Birmingham Senior Cup winners, Leamington FC.

“We have big plans for the future – we’re keen to ensure that the team continues its lightning pace and charges into the Elite League,” Graham Moody said.

“We’ll be working closely with the established team and network that has supported the team thus far, especially team coach, Pete Russell.

“Under his strong and effective management, MK Lightning has grown from strength to strength. Both Monica and I are focused on providing a stable and ambitious future for the team and its fans.”

As well as a love of sport, both have backgrounds in business management and strategy – skills they are looking forward to using to ensure that MK Lightning remains successful and commercially-sound.

“We also want to ensure that the fans continue to be part of this amazing team’s journey,” Monica added.

“We’ll be working hard to provide great rewards and incentives for the team’s loyal fanbase. We’re looking at everything from the season ticket offer to our social media presence to enable the fans to get even closer to the action.

“We’re ice hockey fans ourselves, so we know how important the fans are to the team’s morale and success.”
