On 19th May, the Buccaneers crossed the Pennines to take on the Sheffield Mavericks in only the third ever meeting between the two clubs. Both games last season were close affairs and both teams were looking forward to renewing rivalries.
We’ve been a bit behind with our match reports lately so here is one update that covers our last three games!
Sunday 3rd March saw the Buccaneers return to Ice Hockey Summer Classic action against rink-mates Wyre Seagulls. The Seagulls won both the league and play-offs last year and the Buccs knew they’d have to work extremely hard to come away with anything. The game saw a Buccs debut for Jonny Nuttall and a return to competitive action for Adam McArdle in his first game for 3 years.
The Blackburn Buccaneers are extremely proud to announce the first jersey retirement in our 11 year history. Following the announcement of his intention to return to his native Canada, Darren Shaw’s number 67 jersey will be retired by the club.

Firstly, happy new year to all of our players, families, friends and opponents up and down the country.
We closed out 2018 by welcoming the Riverside Raiders to Blackburn for a challenge scrimmage. The game was keenly contested by two teams who showed no sign of Christmas over-indulgence. The score at the end of 3 running clock periods was Buccaneers 5-6 Raiders. MVP for the Buccs was Hudson Nuttall who bagged his second MVP in as many games and for the Raiders it was Mike Teinert who capped a battling performance with a lovely tip-in goal. Thanks to Riverside for loaning us a netminder for the game whilst our own Glen Rattray spends some time in his native South Africa. Continue reading “New Year – Same Ugly Faces”
Sunday 25th November saw the Buccaneers make the familiar trip down to Deeside to take on old friends and rivals, the Flintshire Phantoms looking to break what is becoming a bit of a curse in Deeside having not come away with a win for the last 6 games.
There were Buccaneers debuts for Sam Calderbank and Hudson Nuttall.
The game started brightly for Flintshire after Liebelt put them ahead after just 28 seconds but the Buccaneers fought straight back through Tom Laurie – his first goal for the club, Longworth getting the assist. Flintshire regained the lead on the 10 minute mark with a goal from George Perrett and the lead was doubled just 3 minutes later by Chalmers.
The Blackburn Buccaneers are pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Higson as Head Coach for the 2018/19 season. Continue reading “Higson Takes Buccs Reigns”
