Bulldogs visit latest Blackpool Attraction

Blackpool1The Bulldogs were invited over to the new Seagulls rink for a pre-season training session on Saturday. A collection of U12’s, U14’s and U16’s enjoyed a total of around 2 hours of training with all players getting plenty of valuable ice time and experience. An excellent rink which is soon to be further enhanced with the building of a new spectator stand and separate warm up pad. We wish them every success in their debut year!

Senior Team join ENL North Div 2

The Bulldogs have a senior team for the new season to compete in a total of 36 matches in the ENL North Div 2. This is part of our development plan to provide a pathway to our junior players to make the transition towards professional ice hockey. With so much young talent it is anticipated the most of our conference players, a high percentage who already represent England, will be provided with opportunities at the age of 16 to train up with the seniors to see if they are able to compete for a place on the team bench.

Bradford Hockey Camp – A Great Success for our Future Players

Dan and Lydia with their Awards

Several players were presented with medals last Saturday by Head Coach Andy Brown at the end of the gruelling Bradford Ice Hockey Camp. Daniel Johns (aged 6) received the Most Improved Player Award and Lydia Lutwyche (aged 6) was presented with Spirit of the Camp Award. Both players have since signed up for the Bulldogs and will be playing for the U10’s. We wish them luck for the new season!

TVR Factory

Old TVR Factory now an Olympic Size Ice Rink

Bradford are pleased to be able to have negotiated a dispensation with the EIHA to be able to support Blackpool Junior Seagulls to enter a new U16’s team in the EIHA Junior North 2 division league for the 2014/15 season. Bradford U14’s will form a single line of players all of whom are looking forward to playing out of the new Olympic sized ice rink at the old TVR factory.
