Dragons Withdraw From Laidler Playoffs

Deeside Dragons  - who currently occupy 2nd place in the NIHL North Laidler Conference - have announced that they will not be taking part in the play off weekend which is being held at Solihull over the Easter weekend.

The Welsh club say that the costs involved in attending the play offs - either making 2 return trips  on separate days or paying for an overnight stay - make it impossible for them to participate. 

They also point to the fact that the decision to hold these play offs was only made in January and, as such, they had not been able to include it into their budget for the season.

Solihull chairman John Butler - who is organising the play offs - has said that the event will still go ahead and that profits from the weekend will be distributed among the participating teams.
