Raptors, Eagles & Hawks 2 Too...

Second string ice hockey has been played at the Blackburn Arena – give or take the odd break – ever since the venue first opened in 1991. 

However, the hardy endeavours of those plucky teams often tend to get overshadowed by the better supported and higher profile main Blackburn Hawks team so we thought it was time to tell the story of the lesser known league clubs from Blackburn.

What you have here is as complete a record as we have been able to muster - based on the information currently available – of the: 

Arrival of ice hockey in Blackburn

Blackburn Falcons 1991-1993

Blackburn Seagulls 1993-1997

Blackburn Phoenix 1997-1998

Lancashire Raptors 2007-2012

Blackburn Eagles 2012-2017, & the 

Blackburn Hawks 2 2017-2020

Includes player stats, personal stories, league tables and lots of great photos.

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

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.
