WEL: playoff finalists meet again in season opener
October 8, 2017
The first round of Women’s Elite League fixtures sees a repeat of last year’s Playoff Final.
Bracknell Queen Bees, perennial league champions, host Solihull Vixens who lifted the Bill Britton Trophy at Sheffield in June.
The QBs have added players to their already strong squad with Katherine Gale returning from Toronto and Nicola Bicknell moving from Slough.
High scoring forward Leanne Ganney is one notable departure, now playing in Sweden.
Solihull have retained the majority of the trophy winning squad, although long-serving Deborah Warwick has retired.
Jessica Urquhart has joined from Nottingham, while Gemma Taylor and Kennedy Wallace have been added in the last week.
Face-off at Bracknell Ice Rink is 3.25 this afternoon.
