Our second senior team, formerly the 'Divs' played in the National North Division One league until the 2016/17 season. Having won the Women's Division One Trophy in the 2016 playoffs, the 'Divs' were promoted to the Women's Premier League, a 7 team nationwide league with teams from Chelmsford, Nottingham, Slough, Milton Keynes, Widnes, and Streatham. Having lost out on the league title due to a technicality the (now) Prems were thrilled to win the playoffs to gain promotion, beating fierce rivals Billingham.
The 2016/17 season was a bit of struggle for the Prems, entering the unknown and initially finding it difficult to keep up with the standard, but they improved vastly towards the end of the season, picking up some wins. The 2017/18 has seen further improvement within the team, as they doubled their wins/points tally from the previous season and confirmed themselves a spot in the playof weekend!
Led by Captain, Great Britain international, Beth Barwell this team is the development team used to give extra ice time to the younger Elite players and to help new players grow into the game of hockey in a competitive league.
