BRACKNELL Bees fans are this Saturday being given a 'not to be missed' opportunity to gear themselves up for the forthcoming season.

The refurbished Bracknell Skate Shop at The Hive is being reopened with head coach Doug Sheppard and some of his players in attendance.

There will be the launch of a new line of merchandise – including shirts, skates and sticks – which will be on sale or available for order, along with all the regular club items.

And there will be many reduced items for sale on the day with up to 25 per cent off on selected items.

Fans will also have the chance to take part in a shoot-out and target games, while socialising with team members.

"We will also be around to discuss our plans for the upcoming season and we will be announcing a new signing," said Sheppard.

"Our roster is building up nicely and I am sure our supporters will be excited with our new additions.

"With a raffle as well, Saturday is going to be a fun day and one our fans should not miss."

The store in John Nike Way will open at 10am with the players arriving around noon.

There will also be a special offer for those wishing to buy season tickets.
