The Club has today received official confirmation from the EIHA the both players have received bans of Ten and Three games respectively.Team Captain Ollie Lomax served his first game in last nights win over Sutton Sting and will be available for selection again for the game against Deeside Dragons on Saturday 1st Apil.
Rick Bentham served his first suspension also last night and can return to the Hawks line up on 25th February against Telford. The Club will respect any decision made by the governing body and no appeals will be forthcoming.The ban on Ollie Lomax is due in part to the accumulation of points from penalty minutes (as per the rules).
Rick Bentham’s suspension is also due to an accumulation of penalty points.
The club will always respect the decisions of officials during a game whether right or wrong but at the same time we also understand that mistakes can be made and emotions can run high from both teams and the officials in charge.
