Seasons

The 1929–30 British Ice Hockey season was the inaugural season where an organised league structure was implemented. The format consisted of a Southern and Northern British league and a Scottish League.[1]

In the BIHA Championship the leading teams from the southern and northern leagues would play off to determine who met in the final and compete for the Patton Cup. In the final London Lions beat Glasgow 2–1 with Blaine Sexton, who had founded the London Lions in 1924, and Bushell scoring for London and Macdonald scoring for Glasgow.[2]

The Patton cup was named after Major Peter Patton a past president of the British Ice Hockey Association.[3] Patton had founded 'Princes' in December 1896, the first ice hockey club in Great Britain. In the 1913/14 season he also founded the British Ice Hockey Association (BIHA). The 1929/1930 season was the only time Scottish teams were linked with the Patton Cup.[4]
