Enjoyable Open Skate with Willie Wildcat

“The youngsters and parents at the open skate session enjoyed meeting him and it helped raise awareness about tonight’s fixture so we hope that he has encourage some of today’s participants to want to come back to the rink tonight and enjoy the great family atmosphere that hockey gives.


“It’s going to be an exciting cup tie between two great sides and with kids being admitted for absolutely free, it won’t break the bank either!”
