Thornton and Bowman rise to the challenge !
With the 2013-2014 season fast approaching, Billingham Stars management team have been busy behind the scenes putting together a side capable of challenging for honours as the rest of the newly-named Moralee Conference also build their squads. Early on in the summer the Stars announced that coach Simon Leach would be standing down, and soon after he was named as Garry Dowdâ€™s replacement at rivals Whitley Warriors. Whilst Billingham continue to search for a full-time replacement, the management team are pleased to announce that Richie Thornton and Michael Bowman will be coordinating training sessions, whilst match-night bench support will be provided by Director of Coaching Terry Ward.
The Stars will return to the ice when training resumes on July 18th. Billinghamâ€™s squad is taking shape, and the Stars are delighted to confirm that skipper Paul Windridge will lead the Stars in their innaugral Moralee conference. Stars grinder Scott Ward was an early signing along with hard working Ben Davison.
