Now that the 2017 British Para Ice Hockey season is over, we at the Sheffield Steelkings, would like to thank everyone for supporting us throughout our best season to date.
We certainly wouldn’t have come as far as we have without the support of our amazing team sponsors, our incredible volunteers who gave up their time to make sure our training sessions and games ran smoothly and of course our loyal fans, who cheered us on through thick and thin!
We’ve grown both on and off the ice in our past three years and it truly is amazing to have so many people behind us who continue to move us forward as a club, as a team and a family.
Our mission now is to come back bigger and stronger for the new season and continue to build our way to the top.
So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you to everyone who has helped us so far.
Bring on the 2018 season!
Your Sheffield Steelkings are excited to announce Irwin Mitchell as a new team sponsor for the 2017 season.
Founded by Walter Irwin Mitchell in Sheffield in 1912 the small legal practice has grown to be the 11th largest law firm in the UK with 15 offices throughout the country.
Irwin Mitchell developed their Don’t Quit Do It campaign to help raise awareness to the many benefits that taking part in sport can have to help people recover from serious injuries and major traumas. As well as Irwin Mitchell helping local and national clubs, the campaign encourages people to either take part or support disability sports and clubs throughout the UK.
Irwin Mitchell already has an involvement in the sport of sledge hockey and has sponsorship ties with both the Peterborough and Manchester teams.
Associate solicitor Lisa Fairclough, specialises in personal injury and knows the role sport can play in helping her clients after a life changing experience. She said:
“Through our work with people affected by serious injury and disability, we’ve seen how sport can aid rehabilitation and help people turn their lives around. With our ‘Don’t Quit, Do It’ campaign, we want to encourage more people to get involved and enjoy these positive experiences.
“Be Part Of It, is about bringing the people together that make disability sport happen and showing, through pledges, how they make it possible. We’re proud to support the Sheffield Steelkings and clubs and charities up and down the country, to help raise awareness and make it easier for a new audience to take part.
“Para ice hockey is a fast-paced, exciting game and once you watch it live, it’s easy to see why it’s such a unique and special sport.”
Why don’t you join the campaign and pledge your support? Your pledge can be something you already do, something you want to do or something you never thought you could do. For every pledge the firm receives, they are donating £1 to the clubs and charities that make disability sport possible.

As we have no training tonight we thought it would be a great time to mention that we have another returning sponsor.
Phoenix Mobility have been a great source of support over the last couple of seasons and we were thrilled when Robert Fox agreed to continue to sponsor us for our 2017 season.

As most of you probably know, Bryan Hackworth our netminder, also plays for the GB team. They are flying out to Japan next month to take part in the World Sledge Hockey Championships and are hoping to at least repeat if not better their Bronze Medal from the 2013 Championships.
Unfortunately the team have to fund the trip themselves, so if you could spare any money to help get them there it would be very appreciated.
