Veteran sharpshooter Johnny Christie was again in top form as Bromac Kelburne retained their place at the top of the National League yesterday scoring 9 times in victories over Grange and Hillhead. Christie has now amassed an incredible 29 goals in 7 games this year, showing why he can still lay claim to be the best goalscorer in the country.
Christie may be the finisher, however he is well supported by a strong squad who have performed consistently well this year under the guidance of Jeff Cairns. Missing Scotland Senior players Lee Morton, Michael Bremner and goalkeeper Rory Kerr, the depth of the squad was evident as Jonas Nommensen, Jack McKenzie, Adam Bain, Craig Morton and Iain Scholefield all claimed goals in addition to Christie's haul. With the squad also containing Josh Cairns, Gary Maitles, Nick FInlayson and Chris Nelson, there is a growing confidence within the group that they can have a successful season.
The squad now moves onto the split looking to consolidate their position in preparation for the crossover games on the 28th. Full report from Scottish Hockey.
