Last Saturday Flaming Skulls played in the Final WISE cup games weekend seeing the girls pickup 2 wins and closed the score lines on the other teams from the 1st round of games played. It was great to see so many female players getting involved with this event and we can’t wait to be a part of it next season and hopefully get a change to have a home venue to play in to.
Lions whites also played in the 2nd game day where they managed to bounce back from a 5 – 2 loss to Missfits and grind a win against Hitmen 3 – 2.
We would also like to say a big thank you and congratulations to our junior coach Jodie Woodhams who had a a very busy weekend going to Dundee to play 6 games in the WISE cup and scoring 8 goals on the day. Then she come all the way back down south to play for Lions White on Sunday in the Market Drayton league scoring another 2 goals and then taking our Open training session on Monday night.
Jodie may only be 15 but she has a big future ahead of her in the sport and her dedication to Lions & Flaming Skulls is unbelievable. She are a massive credit to the team and her parents. We can already see the progression she has had in the senior setup as last season Jodie scored 2 goals, this season she has 3 goals in 4 games.
I would also like to say a big thank you to Jodie’s mum and grandparents for taking the time out and driving her all over the country this weekend.
We would also like to thank all the girls who trailed up to Dundee to play for Flaming Skulls and it was great to see everyone enjoying them self’s as this is what hockey should be about.
We can’t wait to see how the girls have progressed when the Flaming Skulls next play in the On the Rocks 2nd edition Tournament in May.
We are looking to carry on building Flaming Skulls and are still looking to get more girls from the Manchester area involved in inline hockey so if you would like to come and join us drop us a message and we can find a training session to fit you.
We are also looking forward to this weekend where the North West Junior League is taking place and Lions under 12’s team are playing with Jodie will be on the bench as a coach with James. Our under 8s players are joining up with the Wrexham team.
Lions Black are playing 3 games in the West B league.
Saturday morning sees Tom take our Toddler Skate & Play session & our beginners Junior training session that is on after.
Sunday sees Martin & Jodie take Lions Junior Team & Flaming Skulls training session.
I would like to thank all our coaches parents and players for the support this season it has been a very busy one and we still have another few months go to before the end but so far this has been a great start to the year seeing all our teams and sessions grow and improve.
