SWINDON Wildcats have announced their first two pre-season fixtures for the 2014/15 season.

Cats will warm-up with a two game series against Bracknell Bees on, starting at the Link Centre on Saturday, September 6 at 5.45pm before returning to Bracknell's John Nike Leisuresport Complex the following night with face-off at 6pm.

Cats head coach Ryan Aldridge played more than 150 appearances for the Bees and he's relishing the chance to get kick current side's season off against his former club.

“I had some great times with the Bees and the games will be a great work out for both sets of players," he said.

“Although there’s a lot to do between now and when the guys take to the ice in September, it always brings the new season that much closer when games start to be announced.

“Things off the ice are going to plan so we’ll be ready when it’s time to be on it.”

Ticket prices for the fixtures are yet to be released but will be available shortly at www.swindonwildcats.com.
