The General Manager Garry White of the Gander Flyers told the GANDER BEACON Sunday the following –which implies they are hanging by a thread.
“We’ve cut a lot of expenses compared to previous years, and we thought it would make us successful this year. However, we didn’t anticipate the drop in revenue that was waiting for us,” he said. “Our commitment was to try and finish the regular season, but the financial situation we are in and with declining interest, it might make it impossible. In its current state we can not proceed, that’s how we are looking at it.”
The SPORTSPAGE has learned that the Gander Flyers senior hockey team in the Central West Senior HOckey League have folded. Sources tell the SPORTSPAGE the league has been notified of the teams decision and will meet to discuss how to proceed from this point forward.
With Gander folding the Central West Senior loop is left with just two teams Clarenville Caribous and the Grand Falls Windsor Cataracts.
There was a fourth team last year–Corner Brook Royals but they did not return this season but hoe to next year.
The Flyers are in last place in the three team circuit. They have played 14 games have three wins nine losses and two overtime losses for eight points.
