North meets South in National Development finale.

We are excited to announce the schedule and ticket release for the upcoming Scotland V England Junior Games. 

The games will take place on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th of May at Dumfries Ice Bowl and feature players at u14 and U16 age groups. 

SIH Head of Hockey Operations, Jamie Thomson, said, “ I’m delighted that these games are going ahead. I’d like to thank the EIHA and their lead on this project Seth Bennett, for the proactive approach to making it happen.

This is a great event for us to sign off this season with. We relaunch our national programme in September this year and more events like this will become a regular occurrence. This year has proven to be a real test at national level, lack of ice time, lack of tournaments to attend, cost of travel etc. So pulling this together is a big win and I’m sure the kids are going to love it. 

The tournament will consist of Scotland playing England 3 times over the 2 days in full stopped clock games. Any draws will feature 3v3 in overtime and penalty shots, as we look to replicate the senior level as much as possible. The 4th game for each age group will be a very interesting watch, as we merge team Scotland and England together and draft 2 teams that will go head to head on Sunday afternoon to close the event.”

Seth Bennett, EIHA England V Scotland Series lead, commented, “ This is a great opportunity for the players to play in a really competitive England V Scotland Series. It has been fantastic to work with Jamie and SIH to create an event which is going to bring 12 periods of competitive hockey for each age group” 

I know the players are excited about this opportunity to play against Scotland and hopefully we are going to see some really completive hockey over the two days”
