Our juniors are taking part in the North West League again this season and we are now looking at putting a few different age groups in from ages 6 to 16.

For the 2019/20 season we are looking at growing again with the addition of our Toddler Hockey session starting on the 10th August 9:30am until 10:30am at Ardwick Sports Hall.
The toddler session is designed to introduce your little ones to the world of hockey where they can play with sticks, pucks, Balls and other items. This is for ages 4 and under.
We have decided to create a 2nd senior team to play in the Market Drayton B league. Throughout the season we have seen more and more players join our senior setup and also have some junior players ready to make the step up into senior hockey.
With this we are looking at putting 2 teams in the West B League next year Lions Black and Lions White.
Lions White will be players aged 14 to 25.
Lions Black will be a team who has players aged 26+.
We also have our women’s team Flaming Skulls playing in the WISE Cup and we are also looking at other competitions over the season to take part in.

The lions Junior season is now over and its been great to see how far our Junior players have come.
Finishing 6th in under 14’s Rotherham and then finishing 2nd the North West League this weekend.
We always knew that Rotherham was going to be a very hard league for our players especially as alot of the kids were 12 and under but they battled hard every game and managed to get 3 wins.
For the North West League we decided to let the players play up again in under 14s and towards the end of the North West Season you could see the improvement of the team and they managed to finish 2nd in the league.
Now the season has finished we are looking to push the team on again for next season and our aim is to put at least 2 teams in Rotherham and the North West depending on the ages we have come the start of the season.
