Playing Signings After the Game

Change to the norm for player signings. Fans are now invited to come round to the barrier by the players area and have anything signed by the guys as they come out.  Why not purchase one of the photos on Tom Foy’s table and get it signed as well. All proceeds from the photos will go directly to the team.  Don’t forget your pen for the signings.

This week we will be having a Tombola desk with all sorts of prizes. All put together by Brenda, Jo and Esther. All proceeds go to the team. The Valentine’s tombola last season raised over £100. Let’s see if we can beat that this year.

 

We look forward to seeing you all at the game …

Promising Youth Defender Joins Hawks1

 

Full 9 Yards sponsored Blackburn Hawks are delighted to announce that 17 year old defender Jack Murray has permanently stepped up to the senior team.

Jack, born in Blackpool, first played hockey when he was 11 for the Fylde under 12 team before moving to the Blackburn youth set up. Jack has now represented the Hawks at every level since then and stepped up to the Hawks2 NIHL development team last season whilst captaining the under 18 team.

He was invited to Hawks1 training along with a few other Hawks2 players when he caught the eye of Head Coach Steve Duncombe and was asked if he wanted to step up on a permanent basis.

Jack spoke to the club press officer and had this to say, “ Aaron Davis asked a few of us along to training and it was great to ice alongside the first team and play a part in the drills. I must have done something right as coach asked me to come again and travel with the team. The team were very short benched due to injury and I got my chance of some ice time. It is a great feeling to have played the vast majority of my junior career and with the Hawks2 team to be given the chance to play with the club’s senior team.”

Coach Steve Duncombe commented, “ Jack looked really promising in the training sessions he had with us. We were really short on defence due to injury and I had no hesitation asking him to step up. It really shows the benefit of having a good junior set up and a development team to bring youngsters on.”
