Comets v Stars Challenge Match
This Saturday a Stars select teamÂ will take on the Cleveland Comets in a special fundraising event to support Rachel Serrell and Jenny Hehir as they head out to Switzerland in June as part of the Great Britain Ladies Ball Hockey TeamÂ to compete at theÂ World Championships. There will be a nominal entry fee of Â£2 adults, Â£1 concessions, with a raffle on the door –Â all monies will go towards Rachel and Jenny’s kit, etc. Tony BoyntonÂ has kindly agreed to ref the game.
There may well be a few players swapping sides, plus there is a chance we may get to see a few family feuds – will the Flavell and Keeley brothers end up playing against each other? Former Star Simon Hehir should be turning out, and James McCabe is being talked into making an appearance also.
Not only is this an excellent opportunity to show our support for Rachel and Jenny, the game will provide the Stars with a good workout in the run-up to the play-offs. Face off on Saturday is 5.30pm – follow Stars and Comets social media for updates:
