Andy Little departs Fife Flyers

Fife Flyers Ice Hockey Club can confirm that netminder Andy Little will not be returning for the 2024/25 season

Andy Little first played his first two seasons in the Scottish National League in the West with Kilmarnock before the then 18 years old headed East to join the Kirkcaldy Kestrels for the 2015/16 season. At the end of his second season he made his Flyers debut on April 1st 2017 when he dressed in his first EIHL games backing up Shane Owen in both play-off quarter final match ups against the Belfast Giants.

Last season Andy was thrust into action just before Christmas in the most dramatic of circumstances when Shane Owen had to retire with an injury at the end of regulation with the Flyers and Giants heading to overtime. Andy held his own as the game was settled in favour of the Giants in the shootout. Andy would play the next four consecutive games over the festive period culminating in a momentous Man of the Match performance in a 7-4 win against the Glasgow Clan at the Auld Barn on Hogmanay. Over his 7 seasons with the Flyers Andy has played in 11 games but dressed in an additional 300 games as a back up. 

Commenting on his move, Andy said “I can’t thank Todd enough for giving me the chance to play the sport I love professionally for the last 6 years and always having my back. A massive thank you has to go to the fans, the noise and support you all give week in week out is unbelievable, the noise in that building when I finally got that first win in December is something I’ll never forget and a night I’ll always remember. I wish you all the best for the upcoming season and I’m sure I’ll see you in an ice rink somewhere at some point!”

Our thanks go out to Andy Little from everyone at the Club and we wish him the best for the future.
