Weekend Preview â€“ Week 3
The Bracknell Bees go into their third weekend of the season unfortunately still looking for their first points on the league and cup tables and looking to get their season off and running.
A trip to Peterborough to face the Phantoms is first up on Saturday evening.Â Â The Phantoms got their season underway last week, a week later than most other teams, and suffered two narrow defeats â€“ on the road in Sheffield by one goal and then at home to Swindon on penalty shots.Â Â They, just like the Bees, are sure to be looking to get their season off and running also, especially in front of their home fans.
The Bees return home to the Hive on Sunday to face their local rivals, the Slough Jets.Â Â Having already faced the Jets in the pre-season Berkshire Cycles Cup at the start of the month the sides are already very familiar with each other.Â Â The Bees will be looking to put on a solid display at home in front of their fans and will be wanting to again defeat the Jets as they did when they last visited the Hive.Â Â The Jets, having lost home and away to the Manchester Phoenix, will be looking to get back to winning ways themselves too so a tense game is in store.
A small number of Bracknell Bees 2013/14 season tickets are still awaiting collecting and these along with your Welcome Packs and can be collected from the reception desk in the foyer pre-game this Sunday.
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 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 Also new in are Lanyards for your season tickets (price at Â£2.50 each) and they also have a hole punch available for the season tickets too if you wish to borrow it.Â Â The Supporters Club can now also take card payments at the kiosk too J
The 50/50 raffle and Shirt off a Back raffle both return this weekend.Â Â Also the Player signing table returns post game too.Â Â The Shirt Off a Back raffle this Sunday is for Shaun Thompsonâ€™s shirt â€“ straight off his back at the end of the game!Â Â The signing table will also be manned by Shaun and he will be joined by Rob Lamey & Grant Rounding 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 at Saturdays game (priced at Â£2.50 and in full colour throughout) â€“ make sure you pick up your copy as the new look is proving popular.
Unfortunately there has been a slight error in this weeks programme as it advertises Rob Lameyâ€™s shirt as the Shirt off a Back prize â€“ we apologise for the error but it is indeed Shaun Thompsonâ€™s shirt up for grabs this week and not Robâ€™s.
Hope to see you all there Loud & Proud!
