Preview – Young Epilepsy Challenge follows weekend off

The Berkshire Cycles Bracknell Bees have a weekend off from games this weekend having concluded 2018 with a four point weekend against Swindon Wildcats.

The Bees return to action immediately in the New Year with the Young Epilepsy Charity Challenge against the Swindon Wildcats. It’s a home and away series with the away game coming first in Swindon on New Year’s Day at 4.15pm and the Bees hosting the second of the two game series on January 2nd at 6pm.

While these games aren’t for league or cup points you can be sure they’re going to be entertaining hockey to kick start 2019 with the teams sharing a good rivalry and neither wanting to give momentum to the other as they both prepare for the exciting run in of the 2018/19 season.

There’s been some confusion over whether the 2nd January game is included in the season ticket and the Bees can confirm that the game is indeed included in the season ticket package.

As well as the hockey there’ll be plenty of fund raising going on for Young Epilepsy.

Bees Head Coach Doug Sheppard said; “It’s nice to get a little break over the holiday period then get straight back into a game and again test ourselves against a top team.

“Most importantly it’s a great chance for both us and Swindon to hopefully raise a lot of money for a great charity. I’m delighted we have these two opportunities to raise money for Young Epilepsy. We had a great turn out at the Hive before Christmas and hope to repeat that at both of these upcoming games and raise as much as we can for Young Epilepsy.

The Young Epilepsy Charity challenge starts on Tuesday 1st January at 4.15 in Swindon ahead of the final leg in Bracknell on Wednesday 2nd January at 6.00
