Scottish Ice Hockey board steps down with immediate effect

Scottish Ice Hockey wishes to confirm that all of its board members have resigned from their positions with immediate effect.

SIH recently announced that chairman David Hand would be stepping down at the next Annual General Meeting.

However, subsequent discussions about moving the sport forward in Scotland have been ineffectual and the entire board feel their positions are now untenable.

The board members are incredibly frustrated that the opportunities presented by becoming a standalone National Governing Body have not come to fruition.

This has created a landscape where SIH is unable to function correctly.

On that basis, the board members feel they have no other option than to step aside to allow others to take up the reins.

The board is dismayed at being forced to take this course of action.

At a time when everyone should have been coming together to push towards a better future, the board believes that this missed opportunity has set Scottish Ice Hockey back years.

SIH media will issue further communications on the future structure when this is made available.
