Buccs Head to Flintshire for Season Opener

The Blackburn Buccaneers will kick off the 2017-2018 season by renewing rivalries with the Flintshire Phantoms. The two clubs have had a good relationship for a number of years now and it’s always a welcome fixture in the calendar with varied results over the years.

The game will take place at Deeside Leisure Centre on Sunday 26th November. Face-off is at 20.00

However the two lines skated hard right to the final buzzer and held on for the victory.

Catch-Up with Higson and Price ahead of Season Opener

As our opening game of 2017 draws closer, we thought it would be a good time to catch up with two Buccaneers who won’t be pulling on the black and yellow this season after making the jump to league hockey. Mark Higson left us for his second stint in NIHL2, this time with the Bradford Bulldogs and Carl Price made the somewhat shorter journey to the Blackburn Hawks in NIHL1.
