Letter To The Editor: Ferner Fan

Long time season ticket holder Derek F. Allen sent a letter into yesterday's Vernon Morning Star letter to the editor regarding the Vernon Vipers coaching staff.

Here is the letter to the editor from the Morning Star,

Ferner Fan

June 1 2023

So the Vernon Vipers playing season has come to an end. 

I must say I feel very sorry for the young players. Each one of them got to Junior A status because they had the talent as a player. So why did we have such a lackluster season, ending in sixth place out of nine in the Interior Division? 

There were games where they played with absolute dtermination and thewinning score proved that.

However, upon reflection I can only suggest we need a coaching staff that can train these young players to able to play team hockey. So far they have failed to do this.

My wife and I have had season tickets for close to 25 years and we will continue being season ticket holders in hopes that one season (soon we hope) the Vipers will improve and become real contenders in the league as they were before.

It can be done. We won three Fred Page Cups and Two Royal Bank Cups when Mark Ferner was the coach.

I'm sorry but I don't think the present coaching staff will be the ones to bring the Vipers back to a winning group of young hockey players.

Possibly our current owners could make an effort to bring back winning hockey to Vernon by finding and convincing Ferner to return as the head coach of the Vernon Vipers.
