Netminder Chris Douglas hailed the Invicta Dynamos fans after completing his first shut-out since moving to Gillingham.

Douglas took the man-of-the-match award after helping the Mos to a 5-0 win over Chelmsford Chieftains in the South East Trophy on Sunday.

The Chieftains beat Invicta 13-3 in the same competition before Christmas and are among the teams vying for honours in the NIHL South Division 1.

“The fans here are amazing and when I hear them sing, they make me want to play better every week,” said the Mos goalie.

“They made it easy for me to settle. I love playing for the club and when the fans are like they are, it makes it so much easier. I drive two hours to training and for home games but the fans make that journey worth it. They are loud, they back the team and we have a good following away as well.”

Douglas survived 48 shots against Chelmsford to leave the ice with his goal intact.

“It’s always nice to get a shut-out and doing it against a top team makes it extra special,” said the 34-year-old. It was a tough game and the defence and forwards did their job as well. Any shots that did squeeze past me were cleared off the line.”

The Mos are on the road twice this weekend, facing Milton Keynes Thunder on Saturday before a trip to face Chelmsford once more, on Sunday. Both games are in the league.
