Ryan Dingle named EIHL player of the week

Fife Flyers captain Ryan Dingle is this week’s Elite League Player of the Week  - but reckons he’s just a small cog in a bigger picture at the club. Dingle scoops this week’s accolade after his three goals and an assist in their two victories over Gardiner Conference rivals Manchester Storm.

But in a red-hot run that has seen him pick up 17 points in his last seven games, Dingle couldn’t pinpoint why he’s been on such great form.

“Whether it’s hard work and dedication or just finding myself in the right place at the right time, guys are putting the puck in on the net,” Dingle said.

“Hockey’s a funny game.  Sometimes you can play really well, but the puck just bounce for you or it doesn’t make its way into the net.

“But it comes down to those wins and collecting two points after every game and we’ve been playing well and are finally starting to get full strength.

“The extra responsibility of being the captain is something I pride myself in and I think leading the team doesn’t come down to one person.

“I have assistants and great coaches to work with.  I consider myself just a small cog, I work hard and I help the team try and win every night.

“Up until this last little stretch, I don’t think we’ve performed to our capability within conference and it feels good to have put a run together, winning five of our last six now.

“Things are looking up in Fife right now and we hope to continue this win streak.”
