The new season of WNIHL is only a few weeks away, and we continue the publication of league schedules with the details for Division 1 North and South.

Division 1 North features six teams – Nottingham Vipers have entered a second team to support their WNIHL Elite squad, while Widnes Wild have come down from WNIHL Premier last season.

Sheffield Shadows and Telford Wrekin Raiders get the season underway on September 29, while Nottingham’s new squad get their first action against Solway Sharks on October 5.  Widnes Wild host Sheffield Shadows on October 6 to round out the opening weekend.

Grimsby Wolves begin their second season, and they start on the road before their first home game against Solway Sharks on November 9.

There are seven teams in Division 1 South, with Invicta and MK sadly pulling out.  We hope they can come back in the not too distant future.  Of course the division has also lost Cardiff Comets from last season, as they won promotion to WNIHL Premier and the Widnes Wild were relegated to D1 North.

Peterborough Penguins and Slough Sirens get the division underway on October 5, with Oxford Midnight Stars and Streatham playing 24 hours later.
