This weekend sees a double-header with the Widnes Wild as warm-up for the season to start next weekend.
This is the first time the 2 teams have come face to face since the NIHL North Cup games of the 2015-2016 season. Head Coach James Neil has the Hawks geared up to start the season on a positive note, while Widnes have a point to prove as they have yet to notch a victory against an NIHL North 1 side.
Some playing personnel have swapped sides over the last season’s with former Hawk Chris Gee signing with the Wild, and ex-‘Wild Ones’ Geoff Wigglesworth, Lee Pollitt, Tom Revesz and Joe Greaves all now playing for the Hawks.
Our regular 50/50, Shirt Off The Back draws and Chuck-a-Puck competitions will be running, along with the merchandise stand where you can order your replica 19/20 season Hawks jersey.
See below for footage from the last meeting between the 2 teams!
We hope to see you there!
