Exciting Times Ahead For The Dragons
Following the NIHL North section meeting on Sunday 14th May, the EIHA announced the format for the 17/18 season.
The Dragons heroic efforts of last season have been rewarded. The team will take their rightful place in the second tier of British Hockey, North Division 1. The quality of the league will be immense with 3 former EPL Teams now coming in to the league.
The Dragons were fully supportive of the new league structure and are looking forward to the challenge as we build our squad for next season.
Excitingly, the Dragons organisation are keen to develop local and junior talent and have taken the decision to enter a Development team into North Division 2. The league meeting unanimously supported our application and recognised our commitment to develop young British talent.
Dragons fans will now get a double fix of hockey at the Den with both teams playing a 36-game season.
AND – No more frustrating Draws (but who can forget the Solway game?) next season we will have 3 on 3 over time and penalty shots.
