THE OTHER STUFF

The Dundee Stars have came across three clubs beginning with the letter ‘M’ in their history and they are MILTON KEYNES KINGS/LIGHTNING, MORAY TORNADOES and MANCHESTER STORM.

The Stars first faced a team from Milton Keynes in their first ever season, as the KINGS competed in the BNL. The KINGS would finish seventh in the league as the Stars won their famous double but that would be their only clashes for the next 10 years.

In the 2017-2018 Elite League season, the Stars returned to taking on the Buckinghamshire outfit, with the addition of the LIGHTNING to the EIHL. After finishing 11th, with the Stars six points ahead in 10th, Milton Keynes would become the basement club the following season and it would also be there last in the Elite League, as the club dropped back down into the English leagues.

 

 

Following the collapse of the BNL, the Stars moved into the Scottish leagues, where they would face-off with MORAY TORNADOES in the SNL for two years. After finishing second on 26 points, Dundee found themselves 14 clear of the sixth-placed Moray. The next season was a similar story with the Stars runners-up once again and the Tornadoes 21 points behind in ninth.

Most recently, the Stars have been doing battle with MANCHESTER STORM since they joined the Elite League in 2015. The STORM finished ninth in their first season and were just 11 points behind Dundee, who sat seventh.

However, in the 2016-2017 season, it was a lot closer as the two sides both won the final two playoff spots with the Stars just two points ahead. Although, when Omar Pacha departed Manchester and took the helm at Dundee, the battles intensified.

 

 

The Storm’s third year saw them soar and claim second place in the Elite League, while the Stars slipped to 10th but the 2018-2019 campaign brought the two back closer together. Both teams would miss out on a place in the post-season but only a single point separated them in ninth and 10th, as the STORM stayed on top.

Finally, the tight margins did not disappear in the most recent season that was curtailed, with Manchester holding a two point lead over the Stars, who still had a game in hand on the Altrincham side. Before the season was cancelled, Manchester occupied the eighth and final playoff spot but the Stars were determined to knock them out of it.
