SOLIHULL BARONS Junior Ice Hockey Club will face the country’s top clubs next season after securing the Division N2 league on Sunday night after defeating Nottingham 15-1.

The Under 18s squad played their final game of the 2015/16 season at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena and snatched the title from the hands of Sheffield – Solihull’s main title rivals.

To add to the success as a team, no more than four members of the under 18s squad finished in the top five points scorers for the entire season with Louis Farthing starring as top points scorer in the league.

Several of the Barons under 18s players also skated for the under 20s squad while Brandon Anderton appeared in the senior squad and Amy Trueman representing the GB under 18s women’s team in Poland.

Head coach of the Solihull Barons Junior Team, Lee Trueman, said: “We have a diverse mixed gender team with a range of abilities who have pulled together to achieve this years title and I couldn’t be more proud of them.

“It has been a pleasure to help the kids achieve these goals, though it couldn’t have happened without the great support from all the parents and manager Joanne Trueman and all the coaching team.

“There’s been success across all categories with the under 13s squad winning the Godiva Cup at Coventry’s Skydome last weekend.

“It’s been an incredible season for all age groups and it’s so good to see our club growing and developing from strength to strength.”
