Blackburn Hawks look to skate to Solway glory

First published in Ice Hockey

BLACKBURN Hawks are in Ice Hockey Northern Cup action tomorrow as Scottish outfit Solway Sharks skate into the Arena.

The Sharks are running away with the English National Ice League North Two and were big winners when they beat Lancashire Raptors in their league game at The Arena earlier this season.

And the match, which faces-off at 5.45pm, will see two old fans favourites, Bob Chalmers and Gary Russell, make returns to Blackburn.

The Hawks have a full strength squad available for the match with Gary Dixon proving his fitness, while Brian Worrall is also fit to return for the clash.

After the game the Hawks Supporters Club have arranged a meet-the-players night in the bar area with all spectators welcome to attend.

The Hawks are looking to bounce back from their 5-0 defeat at the hands of high flying Trafford Metros last weekend.

That loss left them in seventh place in English National Ice Hockey League North One with four points from their four league games to date.
