Thornton delighted to be back with Giants

Canadian Steve Thornton is returning for a second spell as coach of the Belfast Giants.

The 41-year-old from Ontario took charge of the Odyssey team as player-coach in 2008, replacing Ed Courtenay.

Thornton led the Giants for two seasons, winning the British Knock Out Cup and Challenge Cup in 2009 before a Play-off Championship triumph the following year.
