Deeside Dragons ice hockey club back with a bang after tough few years


Members of an ice hockey club are getting their skates on ready to take on a new season after a tough few years.

Deeside Dragons have been prevented from playing due to Deeside Ice Rink being used as a Rainbow Hospital and then as a vaccination centre during the Coronavirus pandemic.

After confirmation that the rink will be back in place this year, the club is now bouncing back having been accepted into the National Ice Hockey League’s Division One North.

The Dragons have also announced a new coaching team led by none other than Mike Clancy, head coach of the gold medal-winning GB women’s team. He will be joined by Dave Clancy, another GB coach, Matt Compton and Marc Lovell. All four are local lads who have played for Deeside in the past. Watch World Juniors Online
