New Book: 10 Years In The Wild (2013-2023)

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Widnes Wild ice hockey team, we thought we’d gather up all the material that we have collected over the years and put it together in one single volume.

Whether you are an avid Widnes Wild fan, a follower of British ice hockey in general or just mildly curious, you will certainly find something here to interest you, including:

A Note On Amazon Purchases.

For people who may be interested in the stats and the stories but not necessarily bothered about the full colour images and higher quality paper of the original edition, we have produced a lower budget, black and white version which is available to buy on Amazon.

The actual content is exactly the same – just with black and white photos instead of colour - and you can order the b/w version via this link: 

We have decided not to put the colour edition on sale via Amazon for the time being as their production costs for a “print on demand” book in full colour are prohibitively high and I don’t think that it is fair for them to charge £30.00 for a book that I am selling for £15.
