ICE HOCKEY: FLINTSHIRE Freeze's play-off fixtures have been finalised by the English League.
This weekend's provisional date at Blackburn Hawks has been put back to Saturday, March 27, and Freeze player-coach Mark Stokes is unhappy there is now a four-week gap between the club's final league match of the season and their first in the play-offs.
The delay comes as their play-off rivals in ED1 (North) have a backlog of games in the English Cup, which the Freeze did not enter this season.
The winners of the northern section of the play-offs go on to face their counterparts from the Southern Conference over two legs, for the right to be crowned overall English League champions.
All the games at Deeside Ice Rink face-off at 6.30pm.
The dates are - March 27 v Blackburn (a); March 28 v Blackburn (h).
April 4 v Nottingham (h); April 10 v Nottingham (a); April 17 v Sheffield (a); April 18 v Sheffield (h).
