Sheffield Steelers fans are a loyal bunch.
A fair few of them have been following the team since its inception in 1991.
But how informed are they? Just for a bit of fun today, The Star is running a competition, with a prize of five pairs of tickets for the Steelers v Nottingham Panthers ‘derby’ match, which is the curtain-raiser for the home Elite League season on September 8.
We want Steeler fans to scratch their heads and come up with a list of players whose surnames match a particular category.
In other words if your choice of category was Steeler players with a ‘girls’s name’ you could put in:
Jody Lehman, Scott Allison, Les Millie, Mark Florence, Craig Lindsay and Boe Leslie. (No offence lads.)
Or a category of names with an occupation: Steve Carpenter, Jason Weaver, Doug Sheppard and Robert Farmer.
Make up your own category, list five names and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 31.
We’ll select the winners and ensure the tickets are sent out.
