The club was born in 2011, due to a major push by Planet Ice and the British Sledge Hockey Association, to breathe new life into the game within the UK. Sadly, just before our club formed, the game was on the decline, with only 1 club remaining that could play at a competitive level. This all changed in 2011, when along with ourselves, and Basingstoke Bisons, we joined the league.
Each year since, new clubs have come and gone – but the league is always moving forward and more players are coming into the sport. The league now boasts a total of 5 clubs that includes, Manchester Phoenix, Cardiff Devils, Kingston Kestrels, Sheffield Steelkings and Peterborough Phantoms.
In 2011, we won our first trophy, the Play Off finals against the established team, Kingston Kestrels. It took another 2 years for our club to gain experience and in 2013 we won the first Planet Ice League Championship. We followed this up in 2014 with the League and Play Off double, and in 2015 we successfully retained the League Championship for a third time. We made it four on the bounce when we won the 2016 League campaign, following that up with the Play-Off tournament trophy.
The club started with only a small handful of players, and the majority are still with us today, along with an ever expanding squad that is growing every season. We are proud of to provide a fully inclusive experience for those new or experienced to the game. We have helped to develop players, who have represented Great Britain at World Championships and Paralympic Qualification tournaments. We are always looking for new members, so if you’re interested in giving this great sport a go, please contact us.
