The team was formed by Canadian, Ian Ross, and started out without a name as such. The name 'Foreign Legion' was the first recognized name for the team, and was followed by 'London Flex' - the team had a high percentage of foreign players from Canada, America, Finland, Russia, and France to name but a few. Early in 1998, the name was changed for the final time to the London Legion. Initially training was at the small rink at Michael Sobell centre in Islington but soon expanded to include one evening at the Alexandra Palace.
Todays London Legion train twice a week at their now 'home rink' of Alexandra Palace and the squad numbers continue to rise. The overall sense of enjoying hockey remains with the team, as well as the hard work and discipline that is required when it comes to competitive matches.
It is our policy to remain an open club and to promote the sport of ice hockey to both experienced players and to complete novices alike.
