Matt Sisca faces his former side Manchester Storm on Saturday

This weekend the FiFab Fife Flyers host Manchester Storm on Saturday, in Gardiner Conference action at Fife Ice Arena. This will be the first time this season that the teams have played each other. Flyers then travel south on Sunday, to take on Danny Stewart's Coventry Blaze at the Skydome Arena in Coventry.

One player in particular looking forward to the weekend's encounter with Manchester Storm is Matt Sisca. The 2nd year EIHL forward spent his 1st year in the UK playing with Omar Pacha's Manchester side last year, and despite finishing 9th in the Elite League standings, Sisca was the EIHL's 2nd top point scorer with 34 goals and 43 assists.

"I am extremely excited to face Manchester this upcoming Saturday. I have a lot of friends on that team and it will mean a whole lot to take the 2 points this Saturday for a big division win." the Woodbridge, Ontario native said. "I really enjoyed my time in Manchester last year. We had a great group of guys, from the management of Neil Russell, to the player/coach of Omar Pacha and all the players that put on a Storm jersey last year.

"For a first season club, we had a lot of ups and downs. Manchester put an arena and a hockey club together in 6 weeks. It's something to be proud of for how close we came to making it to the playoffs and I believe the future in the Manchester storm will be one of the top spots to play."

This summer, after holding talks with head coach Todd Dutiaume, Sisca jumped at the chance to continue to play in the EIHL and in front of the Fife fans.

"Playing in Fife is a totally different game than in Manchester. First the ice surface in Manchester is very small, smaller than a North American ice surface, whereas in Fife it's an Olympic sheet. Everyone's game and team game has to change due to both ice surfaces. 

"With the fans though, on both sides in Manchester and Fife they are loud and support their club 100%. I am thankful to play in front of such great fans in the 2 years I've been in the EIHL. I'm just hoping there are no boo's down in Manchester"
