Caps Face Warriors Over One Weekend


Edinburgh Capitals and Whitley Warriors will now face each other over one weekend for the Northern Challenge Cup.

Due to the delay in Murrayfield Ice Arena reopening, we have had to reschedule the home game between the teams. This will now take place on Saturday 12th November 2022, with a 6.30pm Face Off. The return leg down in Whitley will be played the following evening, Sunday 13th November 2022.

These two games will be a great chance for Head Coach, Steven Lynch to test his team against NIHL opposition. “We look forward to these challenge games for several reasons. They give us a chance to assess our team against a quality NIHL opponent and where we may potentially need to improve. It also allows us to fly the flag for the SNL league and help raise its perception south of the border. Should we compete and challenge Whitley, it may give other Scottish clubs food for thought about cross-border competition down the line which can only benefit and raise the standard of hockey in Scotland in the long run. It has always been my ambition to attempt this, previously through junior hockey and now through seniors.”

If you have already purchased tickets for the game on the previous date of Saturday 15th October 2022, these will still be valid for the game on the 12th of November 2022.
