Episode S1E05. The Les Millie Interview.
Born in Fife, Les started skating at just 5 years old and progressed through the Kirkaldy junior ranks until, at just age 14, he was called up to make his senior debut for the Fife Flyers against the Dundee Rockets.
The following season Les was a regular in the Flyers team, playing a total of 35 games, scoring 10 times.
Les talks of his time at Fife, about his move to Sheffield as “Laser Les” and the glory times that followed, the close bond between the Steelers players and talks about “that game” in Nottingham in 1995 when the Steelers snatched the League Championship title away from the Nottingham Panthers in their own barn.
He also gives us an insight into his least favourite ice rinks, the opposing teams fans and of his less than warm welcome on his return to Kirkaldy, as a Sheffield Steelers player.
