The Solihull Barons have announced today, Wednesday 6th May, that they will be entering an U20s team in the new EIHA U20s League that starts next season. The team will be the farm team for the double league and play-off champions and will bridge the gap between the junior teams at Solihull and the senior team.
The U20s will give the Barons the opportunity to develop the raw talent in the Midlands and bring them up to the standard to play for the senior team. They will have the opportunity to train with the Barons; wear the same shirts with their own squad numbers; train the same hockey systems and have the coaching assistance of the senior team. Ex Solihull Baron and Telford NIHL coach, Rob Blakemore, will be head coach and is relishing the prospect.
The U20s will be run financially separately to the senior team to ensure transparency, but apart from that will be run using the same winning formula.
For those U20s that aspire to play for the Solihull Barons and are interested in attending the U20s trial on 30th May, 6:00pm-7:45pm, please contactReblogged 2 years ago from eiha.co.uk
