Senior Season finish this weekend and we are looking forward to the 2023/24 season

his has been one of the more difficult seasons for our senior team after the highs of the 2022/23 season where the team won the Senior B League and booked a Nationals spot.

This season was hampered by injured players and a late start to the season due to issues with BRHA West Fixtures clashing with other UK Leagues.

With that said, the season started off well with a win against a team that has been fighting for the top spot over the last few seasons in Cobras and then a big win against the Sharks who were this year’s favorite to take the top B spot.

Unfortunately, after a positive start, the team struggled to keep up its form and although we picked up 2 wins against Slush Puppies. Lions senior team fell short in a double points game against Knights, lost both games against Wrexham, and lost the return games against Cobras and Sharks which meant the team finished 4th in the B League.

Although it was not the finishing sport the team was looking for we have lots of positives to take from this season including a positive attitude on game days no matter how the games were going. We had 2 new young players playing in the league this season in Thomas who has been with Lions throughout his Junior time. We also had Callum who joined and we experiencing his 2nd season as a senior.

Lions senior team is now looking to improve for the 2023/24 season and the team is looking to compete in the BRHA West Senior League again as well as returning the BRAH North West League.

We have had 1 player hang up his boots Andy who played his last game yesterday and the team will definitely miss his personality at training and on game days but he seems to think taking up golf instead of playing hockey is the way forward.

Next season we will see most of the current players back in a Lions jersey with the addition of another junior player Oliver who will be playing in his debut season as a senior.

We would like to thank everyone who has helped make a difficult season possible in the BRHA West league without Fluffy, the Refs, Timekeepers, Rink staff members and everyone else involved as none of this would be possible without you.

We would also like to thank the players who stuck with the team and league even when there was such a long gap between our last games in August 2022 to our 1st League game in February 2023 and we are looking forward to everyone playing for Lions again in the 2023/24 season.
