Devils’ New Stars Rally Cry – ‘Here Comes The Young’

Cardiff Devils fan Martyn Joseph, a renowned singer-songwriter says it in one of his most recent releases – ‘Here Come The Young.’

Steve King and his fellow owners agree and have handed over control of match night to children aged 12 and under when Dundee Stars play at the Viola Arena on Sunday, March 1.

The owners all know Welshman Joseph, who is a close pal to several former Devils including Mike MacWilliam and Vezio Sacratini, and attended one of his concerts in Calgary.

Now Devils are following Joseph’s ‘Here Come The Young’ lead.

“The kids are taking over the game and you can be part of the show,” says managing director Todd Kelman.

“Management are looking for Devils fans 12-years-old and under to take over key roles within the Devils organisation. 

“Replacements are needed for managing director, customer relations manager, social media manager, head of ticketing, VIP entrance host, match day announcer, DJ, ticket scanners, merchandise sellers, programme sellers and a host of other jobs around the Viola Arena. 

“Kids need to submit an audition video of them announcing the team onto the ice in order to be considered, with a number of children getting the opportunity to take part in announcing the team, goals, penalties and everything else on a game day.

“Parents are more than welcome to be with their children the entire time, but there will be a responsible adult overseeing each child in their new role with the Devils organisation on the night.”
