The city side completed a National Ice Hockey League Division Two South treble by adding the play-off crown to a collection which also includes the East Division title and the League Cup.

Islanders triumphed 13-6 on aggregate against Chelmsford Warriors with the damage being done by a 9-1 success in the first leg on Saturday (April 22).

Stevie Johnson’s men were actually pipped 5-4 in the return clash at Planet Ice, but that result did little to quell the celebrations at the end of their final game before moving under the Phantoms’ banner.
