Scottish Ice Hockey working with the NIHL to integrate Solway Sharks into the SNL

Scottish Ice Hockey can confirm that it is liaising with the English Ice Hockey Association to create a mutually acceptable schedule for Solway Sharks’ fixtures for the 2019/20 season.

In addition to playing in NIHL1 North and the NIHL North Cup next term, the Sharks will also be icing in a full campaign in the Scottish National League (SNL).

Initial telephone discussions have taken place between SIH chairman, David Hand, and NIHL North manager, Gary Dent, to organise a workable schedule for Solway’s matches.

SIH fixtures secretary, Jim Taylor, will now work with the NIHL to ensure that Solway can fully meet their fixture commitments this season.

SIH is happy with the outcome of the dialogue so far and wishes to thank Gary for his help in facilitating the smooth integration of Solway into the SNL.
