Arrows slay the Dragons

Whitley’s U12’s last home game of the season started with the music thumping to welcome the visitors from North Wales.  Deeside were one place below Whitley in the league, so this could be a close game.   A farcical start to the game saw the entire Whitley players fly off the ice to change into away kit to avoid a clash of kit.  A maroon squad of young athletes emerged to…

Whitley Arrows v Blackburn

Whitley’s U12’s penultimate home game of the season was a great opportunity to take the team into the top 3 in the league.  The game started well for the home team with Joe Walls, Callum Taylor and Thomas Fraser all netting within the first 10 minutes.  This was just the start that the team needed and gave the chance for increased ice time for the less experienced players.  It was…

Whitley Arrows Vs. Solihull Barrons

Only the second home game of the season saw a roster of 20 players take on Solihull who started above Whitley in the league table.  Some early pressure from Whitley and some skillful play by Luke Royle let in Thomas Fraser who slotted into the top corner for a 1 – 0 lead after 3 minutes.  A speculative effort by Fraser was rewarded by another goal after 6 minutes.  Whitley’s…
