Inverclyde Preview

Article by Tom Green…

This Saturday on the 24th of May the Youth Highland Wildcats will travel down to Greenock to participate in the Inverclyde Tournament after a month of preparation since the opening tournament in Lossiemouth. Whilst down there the team will play matches against the Inverclyde Phoenix, the Edinburgh Wolves and the Hamilton Buccaneers.

The Wildcats have had a good record against Inverclyde Phoenix and haven’t lost to them since 2012 where they lost 13-0 during the East Kilbride tournament. In total the Wildcats have won 8 of the 13 times both sides have met and will be fancying their chances against the tournament hosts.
