Returning Belfast Giants coach Steve Thornton predicts more success following the club's Elite League triumph.

Steve Thornton's return as the coach of the Belfast Giants was revealed to season ticket holders at a special fans event at the Odyssey Arena.

With the majority of the Elite League title-winning side already committed to another campaign, the Canadian is confident that he has a strong enough squad to defend the title.

Thornton succeeds Paul Adey, who stepped down at the end of the season.
