Weekend Preview â€“ Week 21
The Bracknell Bees will be looking to bounce back after their split weekend last time out, with one win from two games. Â They areÂ back in action starting with a road trip to face the new look Telford Tigers away on Saturday (faceoff 5.30pm) before heading back to the Hive on Sunday to face another of their local rivals – this time the Slough Jets (faceoff 6pm).
After last weekends impressive road win over the Milton Keynes Lightning the Bees will be looking to repeat the road performance on Saturday when they take on the Telford Tigers. Â Telford have added new faces to their lineup and will be a tough proposition having won their last three games against Guildford, Milton Keynes & the Bees. Â The Bees will obviously be looking to avenge the defeat at the Hive only a couple of weekends ago so expect a tough and tense match up.
Sunday sees the Bees back on home ice and looking to get back to winning ways in front of the Hive faithful. Â This will be the last regular season visit of the Slough Jets to the Hive, the Bees having won both previous encounters. Â Slough have had a tough time of late with just one win in their last four games. Â Match ups between the two local rivals are always feisty, rough and tumble affairs with plenty of action so be sure to make sure you don’t miss out.
The 50/50 raffle and Shirt off a Back raffle both return at Sunday evenings game against the Slough Jets and the Player signing table returns post game too.
The Shirt Off a Back raffle is for popular Bees forward Shaun Thompsonâ€™s shirt â€“ straight off his back at the end of the game!Â Â The signing table that night will also be manned by Shaun and he will be joined by Bees forwards Matt Foord & netminder Alex Mettam so make sure you pop along to the family bar, above the home dressing room, after the game.
Donâ€™t forget that the official match night programme has also undergone a bit of a revamp and â€œThe Buzzâ€ will be available again (priced at Â£2.50 and in full colour throughout and packed with photos, match reports, articles etc..) â€“ make sure you pick up your copy as the new look is proving popular.
For those that donâ€™t already know as well as the Supporters Club desk in the foyer there is also a Supporters Club sales kiosk at the back of Block 5 (opposite the bar) which stocks a range of merchandise including the new range of T-Shirts and the Bees replica Cup (Yellow) jerseys.Â Â They also have taken delivery of scarfâ€™s, umbrellas, thermos mugs, ice scrapers and more just in time as the weather has already started to change!Â The Supporters Club can now also take card payments at the kiosk too.Â They have now also taken a delivery of replica Home and Away jerseys too!
Hope to see you all there Loud & Proud!
