British Sledge Hockey Association Play Off Finals at Silverblades Widnes Ice Rink on Sunday September 1.
10:59am Monday 26th August 2013 in Sport
AFTER a busy regular season, the Peterborough Phantoms were crowned Division 1 Champions, de-throning the Kingston Kestrels, the country’s most decorated side. These two sides will meet up in the Play Off Championship game.
Manchester Phoenix, in their inaugural season, finished third in the league and will be taking on the Cardiff Devils, who were crowned champions of division 2, in the 3rd/4th place play off game.
Although a Paralympic sport, it is played by both disabled and able-bodied players and by men as well as women. Manchester Phoenix boasts a rough 50/50 split between able-bodied and disabled players.
Although the Manchester Phoenix team was formed only a year ago, they already have four players who are part of the GB set up and hope to produce more players in the future.
They are based at Altrincham and Widnes rinks.
The first game is scheduled to face off at 5pm. This will be Manchester Phoenix v Cardiff Devils, with the championship game following that.
Admission is free.
