Not all establishments that are currently rated 5 are included because they may have not been inspected in the period or have opened recently.

  24. 24. 26 | hearT sTreaTham as the new season gets underway, the new Coach, adam Carr, has had to mastermind a busy summer of transfers as streatham redhawks compete in the new-look national Ice hockey League south 1. They are back in familiar company with old rivals Chelmsford Chieftains, oxford City stars, slough Jets and Invicta Dynamos after another league restructure restored the old english premier League to the UK hockey hierarchy, albeit under a new name of the national League. Last year’s league opponents peterborough, swindon, Basingstoke, raiders IhC and Bracknell have stepped back up to the new-look second tier to compete with northern rivals Hull, Sheffield, Milton Keynes, Telford and newly formed Leeds Chiefs. Their departure from nIhL south leaves streatham as one of the bigger clubs in their league. expectations are high that they’re positioned to end a long trophy drought. “I wanted to put together a team that can win every trophy we play for, and I believe we have done that” said coach Carr, who is in his first coaching role following the departure of Jeremy Cornish this summer. “I think we have a great mix of what we need to win silverware with speed, skill, toughness and real good characters...” streatham have brought in former GB junior internationals, Vanya antonov and ryan Watt, plus tough forwards, Ben paynter, Brandon miles and Danny Ingoldsby among eight new arrivals. In a further boost to ice hockey in sW16, the streatham under 15s were crowned national Champions after a 4-2 win over nottingham at the Bauer Arena in Sheffield. The title is the first national championship win in over 30 years for streatham juniors, and well deserved. The junior club has also added a development team in nIhL 2 named the hawks, who are set to offer a bridge between the u18 team and the first steps into senior hockey for young players. streatham face Bracknell hornets in a Challenge game on sunday 8th september at streatham Ice arena, before starting their league campaign on sunday 15thseptember at home to slough Jets.
