In a busy week of legends announcements Gary Stefan and Craig Moran can announce that they’ve added four more legends to the list. Midweek recruitment sees Peter Quiney, Robbie Henderson, Dan O’Hanlon and Lachlan Coombe added to the team lists.
Peter Quiney played on the left wing for the Slough Jets, joining in 1989-90 following a year at Richmond Flyers and a senior career starting at his home town club Streatham Redskins. After the 93/94 season Pete retired but has since made two further comebacks playing as recently as 2011/12. His Jets years were between 89/90 and 92/93 and he played 127 games scoring 112+113 and taking 225 penalty minutes.
Scottish born defenceman Robbie Henderson started his career at Ayr Bruins and made his way to England via Telford. He gradually moved further south and landed at Slough where he played for the Jets between 1991 and 1993 with 45 games played, statistics of 0+6 and 57 penalty minutes. Robbie returned North of the border and played with Paisley Pirates until as recently as 2013/14.
Danny O’Hanlon hails from Wokingham but learned his hockey in what was his nearest rink at the time, Richmond. After spells around the leagues he landed in Slough as a mid season signing in 1994/95 where he stayed for a further two seasons. The forward played exactly 100 games with 8+7 for 101 penalty minutes and after the 96/97 season he announced his retirement.
Lachlan Coombe played in three spells with the Jets. He is one of three brothers to have learned their hockey in the Slough Junior programme and Lachlan made his senior debut in 1989/90 with 15 games played. He played for his country at both Under 18 and Under 20 level and was back at the Hangar in 1996/97. He made one further return to Slough in 1998/99 as part of the BNL winning team. All in all he played 66 games, scored 6+7 and racked up 26 penalty minutes.
These four players will join the other already announced Jets legends and many more to come in a day of celebration of 28 years of professional hockey at Slough. The day starts at Absolutely Ice with a legends game, face-off 3pm, and concludes with an evening of food and partying at Copthorne Hotel from 7pm. Money raised from the game will go to two worthy charities, SPICE and the Lymphoma Association. Tickets for the day time game and evening celebration can be purchased from Absolutely Ice reception.
