|Covid-19|1995–96 Guildford Flames season Wikipedia
The 1995–96 season, was the Guildford Flames' fourth year of ice hockey. They competed in the British League Division One. Ivan Brown, once a member of the Winnipeg Jets' coaching staff, joined as a full-time coach from the start of season.
The fourth season saw the team go from strength to strength, Guildford appointed Ivan Brown (former Winnipeg Jets coach) as a new non-player coach. Flames' finished one place higher than in the previous season and made their first appearance in the Promotion playoffs. Finishing third in a playoff group so close that three more goals would have put them in first place. This was also the season which on Sunday 17 December 1995, saw Andy Sparks gets his number retired in a ceremony after a match with the Bracknell Bees at the Guildford Spectrum. In a fitting tribute in front of a full house, his no. 15 shirt was the first to be retired and hung from the rafters.
