Edinburgh Lions Ice Hockey Club was formed in 1998 from Edinburgh Lions Inline Hockey Club who played in th GB Hockey League.
The club held its first training session on 10th October 1998 at Murrayfield Ice Rink, this was attended by Scott Foster (Manager), David Orr, Stevie Thomson, Scott Grist, Ross Whitwell, Ben Caird, Barrie Caird, Stephen McDonald, Maggie Tulett, Pamela, Tracy Wainwright, Kevin McColl, Michael Duthie, Allan Riddell, Sean Clark, Ross Belkin, Dan, Aaron Matheson and Net Minders Scott Ballie and Stephen (Bendy) Ross.
The club initially played in a dark blue jersey, featuring a lions head on the front. The club was self funding at this time. Then the team underwent an update in uniform for courtesy of Marc Guerriot and Klaklak. A new logo was created and a red/white colour scheme jersey was created. The club played in these jerseys for a number of years before creating a purple alternate jersey which was unique to recreational hockey in Scotland at the time.
Due to a series of events in 2004, Davie Bertram took over as manager of the club and still runs the club to this day. Now the club has an A and B squad which train and play regularly both at Murrayfield and all over the country.
Nowadays the club play in a new home and road jersey which was created to raise money for charity and to be worn in a match against Murayfield Juniors. The brainchild of David Badura, his design was made a reality with the help of Mark McCabe who designed the jersey producing many drafts before the current design was agreed upon.
