It was a long journey home from Solihull on Saturday for depleted Bradford Bulldogs, who were beaten 7-1.

Things got even worse on Sunday when Manchester visited the Bradford Ice Arena and won 11-3.

Bulldogs goals were scored by Josh Stockton, Stuart Smith and Jordan Ashington.

The under-12s produced a great performance in beating top-of-the-table Sheffield 4-3, with strikes from Curtis Bailey, Alfie Glenn and two from Kieran Brown. Man of the match was Bradford’s new netminder Corey Stones.

The under-14s continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 13-3 win over Sheffield – Myles Darecs (7), Joel Marrow (2), McAulay Stones (2), Niall Heaton and Thomas Wall scoring to lift them to the top of the table.
