The Merseyside Nighthawks are just….. action! This weekend.
Just as you begin to wind down towards the short cold days of Christmas; it’s now that one of the north west sports in particular, stirs into full blooded action.
If I’m not climbing, dragon boating, riding, fell running or muddy-fox biking, I may well be in this……
The Merseyside Nighthawks are an American Football Team based in Liverpool, who compete in the British American Football Association National Leagues from April until September.
Following an impressive 2013 campaign which saw them record seven wins, two losses and one draw and finishing in the top eight of teams nationally, if you ain’t heard of them, you have now.
The Nighthawks are now on the hunt for rookies who want to be a part of the 2014 tour season as they attempt to win the ‘BritBowl’.
If you want to dress-up and growl and don’t mind getting a little hurt then, they are on the hunt for potential players, coaches, and game day staff- no experience necessary as you will be integrated into a high quality developmental program that will see you working with ex and current Great Britain national players, as well as some of the best coaches in the country!.
It’s a great game when you get into it, as I did when I was at Wiconsin University many years ago. Now as a spectator, I can enjoy the excitement a little more, understanding the rules.
If any of you readers are interested in watching or participating in this sport, then take yourself and the kids for a brilliant afternoon, to the Oval Sports Centre, Wirral on Sunday 17th November 2pm-4pm or next Saturday 23rd November at Childwall Sports Centre,Liverpool 10am-12pm.
So, if you are a fan of the NFL, want to take up a new, fast paced and fun sport or you are just curious about what an American Football session looks like, why not come down and see them at one of the above dates and they’d love to speak to you.
All you’ll need are your footie boots and water and it’s completely FREE!!!!
