Ice hockey pair play in cool ...
Dan Chalhoub and Ben Wilson, both in year 8 at Newminster Middle School, have played in Whitley Bay Junior Development Under 13s Ice Hockey team Mohawks this year.
In a successful year they have achieved a mid-table position in their league and reached a semi-final at a 3 nations tournament in Ayr, Scotland in June.
The pair train weekly on ice, and also practice by playing street hockey or even roller hockey at Morpeth Leisure Centre.
It was a busy season for the boys with away matches involving travel to Manchester, Sheffield, Solihull and Sutton-in-Ashfield, as well as local derby matches against Billingham.
Both boys have now moved up to play for the U15 team next season.
