Earl Ingarfield named to coach Lethbridge Broncos Bronco brass From the left Gary Kirk, Bill Burton, Earl Ingarfield and Dennis Kjeldgaard By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Bill Burton had more than one announcement to make Tuesday evening, but one in particular carried the most significance said Burton, owner of the former Swift Current Broncos of the Western Canada Hockey League, "I would like you to meet the three new shareholders in the Lethbridge junior team I will bring to Lethbridge this fall With that Burton introduced Earl Ingarfield, Dennis Kjeldgaard and Gary Kirk to the press gathering "I would like at this time to also announce that Earl will handle the duties of coach and assistant general manager of the Lethbridge entry in the WCHL Burton went on to say that not only was he excited about the signing of Ingarfield but "Lethbridge and Western Canada will be excited about the return of Ingarfield to the WCHL Ingarfield, a native Lethbndgeite, played his junior in Lethbridge for the Native Sons Burton's resume of Ingarfield's background lists his wide range of talents, the greatest of which could very well be coaching "It was Ingarfield who left Bob Turner with the Regina Pats who this year won the Memorial Cup said Burton Ingarfield did, in fact, handle the Pats when stars like Greg Joly, Dennis Sobchuk and Clark Gillies were 17 year olds It was also announced that the team will remain the Broncos It is well known throughout the WCHL and will in fact keep the same colors of green and gold Kirk and Kjeldgaard, both well-respected businessmen and

player for nine years with New York Rangers, one and half seasons with Pittsburgh Penguins and two with California Seals, knows what it's like to live virtually out of a suitcase for eight or nine months of the year he says, "those four and five-day road trips will be enough for me now Ingarfield left for New York today to finish his duties with the Islanders Ingarfield, prior to becoming director of player personnel for the Islanders scouted and coached for the club "I can still look for some players for the Islanders, he says After all Broncos will be playing in the best junior league in Canada Only a handful of minor problems face the Broncos as they head toward the 1974-75 season, one of which is not season tickets Not at the price they are, to witness hockey in what Burton describes as the finest facility of its kind in Canada "I ve seen them he said, "the Vancouver Coliseum may be bigger but it isn't any nicer than the Sportsplex Season tickets went on sale this

take the money Ticket prices have been set at for adults, for students and for children The schedule will have 32 or more games As well, a family may buy a block of seats, for example, a father, a student son and a child may buy seats in one reserved area for the total price of Burton wants it to be a family affair A budget system of one third now, one third in the summer and one third before September 30, can also be arranged for season tickets Burton pulled up stakes from a city he spent 25 years in to move his hockey club to Lethbridge It was, to say the least, a tough decision It was made much easier by joining forces with Messrs Ingarfeld, Kirk and stated Burton "And by the encouragement from the local press and city council The fact that Vaughan Hembroff bought the first eight season tickets may have swayed Burton somewhat But as he said, "we have an excellent facility to display a great brand of hockey National Football League hands Seattle franchise NEW YORK (AP) The
