Saturday 9th July saw the Buccaneers travel down to Cardiff to take on old friends and rivals, the Cardiff Demons. Off the back of wins against Sheffield Ice Tigers and Don Valley Vikings, the Buccs knew the Demons were going to be an entirely different proposition and took a strong team down to Wales.

Saturday 14th May saw the Buccaneers travel to Grimsby to take on the Stormers in the fourth game of the Summer Classic. Home and away wins over Kingston City Knights and a victory and Ice Sheffield against the Ice Tigers meant the Buccs were heading into this as unbeaten league leaders. The Stormers were unbeaten themselves after their only game – a 5-3 win over the Knights at Hull Arena.
Sunday 24th April saw the Buccaneers play host to the Kingston City Knights in their second meeting of the Summer Classic. The first game saw the Buccs run out 13-4 winners, but with the Knights out for revenge, this one promised to be a much tighter affair.

The second game of the Summer Classic League campaign took the Buccaneers over the Pennines to Sheffield to face the Ice Tigers. After a 10-10 thriller in Blackburn last August, both teams had points to prove.
|Kingston City Knights||1||1||2||4|
On Saturday 2nd April, the Buccaneers made the trip down the M62 to take on Summer Classic rivals, Kingston City Knights. Kingston had sent a strong message to other teams in the competition with two convincing victories over the Sheffield Ice Tigers so the Buccaneers knew they were going to be in for a tough game.
Saturday 2nd April will see the Blackburn Buccaneers head over to Hull for their opening game of the Summer League campaign against the Kingston City Knights. The Knights already have two league games under their belt and have hit the ground running with two very convincing victories over the Sheffield Ice Tigers, scoring 30 goals and only conceding 3 in the process.
The Buccaneers will have to be at their best to halt the momentum of the Knights. Club captain Michael Walsh had this to say:
Whilst we don’t really know anything about the Knights, they have come up with two huge results against Sheffield so we know we will have to be on top of our game. We’re taking a solid team over to Hull and the key to getting a victory will be playing as a unit and taking our chances when we create them. In our recent game against Flintshire we created lots in front of their goal but sometimes struggled to hit the net, if we repeat that against Kingston we could be punished.
Faceoff is at 17.15 at Hull Ice Arena and scores will be posted on our Twitter account @BuccaneersIHC
On Sunday 6th March, the Blackburn Buccaneers made the short trip down to Deeside to renew a rivalry with the Flintshire Phantoms. Historically, games between the two clubs have always been close and this was to be no exception.
After lengthy negotiations (i.e a few months of “I’ll send my reg money over soon, I promise”), the Buccaneers are finally able to announce the re-signing of two of our
key players, Craig Pennington and Carl Price
With these two back on board for the 2016 season, the Buccaneers really do have two more players on the roster.
