LANTZ: Junior C hockey will have a home in East Hants next season.

Terry Isenor and his volunteers were able to purchase the licence from the Yarmouth team, meaning Junior C will flourish in Lantz.

Isenor said there has been a lot of local interest from players who would love to stay close to home to continue playing hockey.

“We’ve had a lot of interest so far,” he said. “But, if anyone else is interested I encourage them to reach out to me.”

Isenor said he had a lot of help putting the league bid and eventual winning of the team licence. But, encourages anyone who would like to volunteer their time behind the scenes to let him know as well.

“I’ve heard from a lot of kids who would love to stay closer to home to play, so this is a win-win,” he said.
