Anyone interested, and living in the Bradford/ West Yorkshire area, should get in touch with Andy Brown.

Bradford Bulldogs Ice Hockey Club has played a major part in the North’s success.

20 players from Bradford Bulldogs Ice Hockey Club represented the North of England in the 2016 EIHA inter conference tournament, which took place recently.

The tournament, which took place in Sheffield, saw the best players in the country from the North, South East, South West, Midlands and Scotland compete against each other to become EIHA Conference Champions, in this showcase event.

The North U11s beat Scotland and the U15s beat the Midlands to be crowned champions. The Under 13s reached the final.

As well as the Bradford players helping their teams achieve the North’s most successful year for some time, two players were selected for the All Star Team in the closing ceremony presentations. Jacob Lutwyche (U15s) was named as an All Star Forward while Lewis Baldwin (U17s) picked up the award as a defenceman.

In addition to these, twelve Bradford players were successful in being selected to their national team squads for the 2016/17 season, as well as two former Bradford players who were not playing in the tournament due to currently playing in North America. The Under 13 s team also won the Northern League for the second year running.

Champion Bulldogs

Bradford Bulldogs U13s League winnersBradford Bulldogs Ice Hockey Club is celebrating as its U13s team has won the league for the second year running and is now set to take on the best teams from the South for the chance to be crowned the English Ice Hockey Association’s National Champions.

The U13s team beat off strong competition from the ten teams which make up the top tier of junior ice hockey such as Sheffield, Nottingham, Coventry and Hull to become the Northern champions.

Bradford Bulldogs U15s Team will also be fighting for National Champion status as a League runner up.

Head Coach Andy Brown said ‘The Bulldogs have had another fantastic year and we are hoping that both teams successfully defend their title. I am very proud of all the players in the Club, who have trained hard all season to achieve their goals’.

The Club, which this season won the EIHA Development Award for the second year running and the Young Club/Team category in the Bradford Sports Awards, hopes the success of the teams will attract more children to play ice hockey. It is particularly looking for players for its Under 11s and Under 13s team.
