Randall Weber

RANDALL WEBERRandall Blain Weber has been a true servant of the Nottingham Panthers. So much so, that his glorified number 10 is hanging above the rafters of the NIC.

A native of St. John, BC, Randall played his entire career for the Nottingham Panthers. A total of 17 fine years of service. He arrived at the club by pure chance, with his father getting what was thought to be temporary work over here and his mother becoming Secretary of the Panthers.

This prompted Randall to join the junior ranks of the team, working his way up through the teams including the Cougars. In 1985, he finally made his debut at the countries highest level, taking part in a challenge match and scoring on his debut against the Crowtree Chiefs.

A full GB international, Weber was known as an all round player rather than a heavy scorer and was valued for his defensive work and his ability on face-offs. Despite this, he could always come up with crucial goals and netted twice in panthers 1989 play-off final win against Ayr Bruins. Who could also forget his hat-trick against Manchester Storm in the B&H quarter final at the MEN arena in 2000?

Mixing working at the Old Ice Center along with playing for the Panthers, Randall also managed to cram in formal qualifications at Clarendon College (Leisure Management).

Randall continued on through years winning the British Championship in 1989 and appearing for Team GB in the World Championships in 1998. His playing career stats ended in 2002 at 839 games played. 317 goals, 507 assists and 506 PIMs.

He now spends time in his native country looking after the Edmonton Oilers arena. He and his wife have three children and Randall is currently enjoying life coaching under 11’s. We are sure he will make just as good a coach as he did a Panthers Legend.
