Whitley Warriors last league game of the season saw David Longstaff and his side travel down to Teesside for a local derby against the Billingham Stars on Sunday evening. Warriors were without Andre Payette and Shaun Kippin who were both suspended following last weekend’s game with the Solway Sharks. Going into the game Warriors knew they needed to win to keep their play off hopes alive and hope other results went their way.
A youthful Whitley Warriors team went down 6-1 to Solway Sharks in the NIHL North Cup on Sunday evening, despite putting up a brave fight.
