A Game with a Sting in the Tale
– Pre-season friendly with Sutton Sting confirmed for Sunday 2nd September (5:30pm FaceOff)
– The Sting will travel to Widnes for the first time since losing the playoff final 3 – 6 to the Wild last April
– In the past five meetings the Wild have won four of the games
– The Sting won the Laidler conference last season and will join the Moralee conference from this season.
The YKK Widnes Wild are back in pre-season training on 9th August with the fixture against Simon Butterworths new look Sutton Sting being the first opportunity for Wild fans to see their side in action as they prepare for the new 2018/19 season.
The teams last met at the NiHL Laidler Conference Playoffs last April. In that tournament the Sting played the Wild in a closely contested Playoff final which saw the Wild emerge on the winning side of a 3-6 result, claiming the NiHL Playoff trophy for the second consecutive year.
Ollie Barron’s YKK Widnes Wild side finished second in the Laidler Conference last term and will once again be looking to build on a promising campaign by mounting another promotion challenge.
The YKK Widnes Wild still have season tickets available starting at £60 and further information is available on the YKK Widnes Wild Website or from Planet Ice Widnes.
