Fife Flyers, sponsored by Arnold Clark Mercedes Benz, can confirm that young Kirkcaldy born defenceman Marty Simpson has signed on a 2-way deal with the Murrayfield Racers for the 2019/20 season.

Simpson, 21, is a product of the Fife junior system, joined the Murrayfield Racers this season after spending the last 4 years with the Kirkcaldy Kestrels in the SNL. Simpson has iced in the Scottish National League 62 times, scoring 19 goals and 34 assists.

Assistant coach Jeff Hutchins said "We think Marty has the potential to make our team as a first team player, however we think it is important for him to continue to evolve as a pro and work on his conditioning. Marty will train with us when he doesn’t have commitments to Murrayfield."

Racers director, Willie Dunn, says the Edinburgh based club are happy that Simpson has been given the opportunity to play for the Flyers.

“Marty remains our player, but this is good experience for him and we wish him well for the game,” he said. “Being in an EIHL environment can only help his development and we’ll hopefully benefit when he puts on a Racers shirt against Dundee Comets on Sunday.”

Also joining Fife for on try-out for the 2019/20 pre-season campaign is Finnish netminder Toni Tammi, who will provide injury cover should the need arise.
