Slough Jets vs Swindon Wildcats 170312

Mixed fortunes of late for the Slough Jets, losses at MK and Sheffield, 4 point weekend vs Basingstoke, a split weekend against the league leaders leading into a tough weekend against Swindon at home and Manchester away. Before we talk about the game itself a word to the officials. Around […]

Slough Jets vs Guildford Flames 100312

Slough Jets lined up against the Guildford Flames in a second back to back home and away weekend series, these two games being the final two meetings scheduled for the regular season between the teams. Slough once again were without Ryan Watt on the ice as he continues to recover […]

Slough Jets vs Basingstoke Bison 040312

Slough Jets took on the Basingstoke Bison in a home and away series to complete their regular season competition for 2011/12. On Saturday night Slough came away with two points when the Bison went down 3-8. The last few weeks had been tough for the Bison with injuries and illness […]

Slough Jets vs Bracknell Bees 22/02/12

Normally when a fixture is rescheduled for unavoidable reasons the rescheduled fixture passes off without incident. It’s obviously not ideal having to reschedule a weekend game to a midweek date but that was what happened when the Jets vs Bees fixture couldn’t be played on the original date. Thanks to […]

Jets vs Phantoms 180212

Slough Jets lined up against the Peterborough Phantoms on the back of 2 successive losses, against the Sheffield Steeldogs and surprisingly a midweek loss to the Swindon Wildcats. My honest prediction for those two games before both of them was a win last Saturday against the Dogs and then when […]

Jets vs Steeldogs 110212

Following a double home weekend Slough finished their home run with a single game weekend and the opponents being the Sheffield Steeldogs. For my money the Steeldogs have been the real surprise package of the season, for the last few years they’ve dwelled in the bottom half of the table […]

Jets vs Tigers 140112

After the disappointment of a zero point weekend the Jets returned to home ice to take on the Tigers ahead of a tough trip to the Spectrum to face the Flames. The Jets racked up a convincing 11-2 victory and already people are saying how bad that is for hockey. […]

Jets vs Wildcats 010112

Slough Jets played a home and away weekend series to end and start 2011 and 2012 with the Swindon Wildcats. The game at the Link Centre on Friday night was the Jets first since the 18th December and in truth, having been unable to train the night prior to the […]

Jets vs Bees 261111

After a loss follows analysis of what went wrong and how to correct it. Last weekend we suffered two losses, at home to Basingstoke and Guildford away. Both had the same results but they were different losses. Saturday we short-changed ourselves against the Bison and got punished while on Sunday […]

Jets vs Bison 191111

We know the Slough Jets are capable of being excellent and we also know the Slough Jets are capable of being average. It’s something that affects every great team and it’s why sport is the spectator attraction it is. The margins between excellent and average aren’t huge, they can be […]
