ICE HOCKEY: Milton Keynes Kings.

ICE HOCKEY: Senior ice hockey could return to Solihull next season if a plan hatched by Milton Keynes Kings to move to the Hobs Moat Road rink is successful.

The Findus British National League side have been moved out of their home venue by the arena owners Planet Ice, who have formed a new club, Milton Keynes Lightning.

Negotiations are now under way about a temporary move to Solihull to keep the Kings alive until new accommodation can be found in their home city.

The future of Solihull Barons, who played in the ENPL last season, is still uncertain. The owners put the club up for sale earlier this year, saying they could not afford to subsidise the poorly-supported team.

Barons have a place in the ENPL, and clubs have until June 1 to say whether they will take part in the next campaign.
