Matt Haywood says he’s enjoying working under former coach Ryan Finnerty at the Elite Series with Manchester Storm.

The team have two wins from two from their opening games at the Elite Series, securing late wins over Coventry Blaze and Sheffield Steelers to clinch maximum points so far.

And for the Aspray Glasgow Clan captain believes his team have character as they showed by the manner they got their victories.

“Working with ‘Finner’ again has been quite nice actually,” he said. “He plays a style I quite like, where it’s high tempo and it’s similar to how we used to play in Glasgow.

“It’s almost like going back in time by four years to when Ryan was last at the club.  It’s been a bit nostalgic, but quite good plus it’s also nice to be with guys who have played for ‘Finner’ in the past as well.

“Sunday was a bit of a struggle on the body admittedly, having not played for so long and the manner of the wins shows the character we have in this time.

“Everyone knows the kind of teams Ryan Finnerty puts out – a hardworking team who graft for the full 60-65 minutes, if need be.  Even though some of the boys were out on their feet on Sunday, we dug deep.

“It was good to see that never-say-die attitude, but I kind of knew that would be the case with the British core on the team.”

“I think we’ve got a good depth in line-up and one of the best Brit cores in the tournament plus being able to play four lines had played a big part. It’s only get better as guys get in better shape.”
