Bradford Bulldogs players rewarded with national call

The Bradford Bulldogs junior ice hockey team have been celebrating after a record number of their players were selected to play for national teams.

Nine have made the grade for England age group and the Great Britain under-16 ladies squad.

The success is particularly impressive as the Bradford club have only about 50 registered players, giving testament to the standard of coaching and the ability of the youngsters involved.

Those selected by England and GB are proud to have been rewarded for their hard work and dedication.

U18 Blackburn Away

The newly formed U18 Bulldogs had their first game of the season away at Blackburn on the 8th September, a little ironic under the circumstances. The team was short benched with only 12 players, as many of the U16’s were unavailable training with the England Team. The team had never previously played together in a game as a team, and for nearly half of the team (the ex Blackburn players) it was against ex teammates. But even under these conditions they all gave Blackburn a really tough game, outshooting them 34 shots to 22, goals came in the first on the power play from Abbie Culshaw and in the third period from Liam Kirton, but sadly we lost 3 2.  I’m sure as the team gels, and we gather a few more players they will work and get the win. MVP went to Niks Veiss.
