Widnes To Play Higher Opposition In New NIHL North Cup

They will play Solway Sharks, Billingham Stars and Blackburn Hawks in the round robin competition, with each side playing the other home and away. Games tied at 60 minutes will be resolved with a sudden-death overtime period followed by penalty shots if required to secure a decisive result.
