My family and I had the pleasure of getting to know Mike during the time he spent playing with Glasgow Clan.we have some lovely memories of Mike including, so much fun and laughter at ladies night with him, Callum and Harry. When my daughter in law Laura made him a personalised birthday cake in the shape of his hockey bag which he absolutely loved and didn’t want to cut into and eat, and some very funny, stupid antics in the amusement arcade on the ferry home after a Belfast game, along with Callum and Harry, the 3 musketeers.
on the ice he instantly became a favourite player for us all, the minute we saw him play we knew he had so much talent and ability, he was someone special. It was a delight to watch him play in a purple jersey. Even when he moved on to other clubs and also to play for GB, we followed his career and wished him well. Mike was a fantastic player and a true gentleman. we were totally shocked to hear the terrible news of Mike’s passing and we would like to pass on our deepest condolences to Mike’s family and friends, our thoughts are with you all. Mike’s candle may have gone out but his light still shines bright, RIP.
