Celebrating 50 years of Deeside Ice Hockey 1976 - 2024

About Aspray Chester Deeside Dragons

Welcome to the heart of the Aspray Chester Deeside Dragons, the most enduring symbol of ice hockey in North Wales and a testament to the resilience and unwavering spirit of our community.

Our Story
Founded in 1974, the Deeside Dragons hold the honor of being the oldest ice hockey team in North Wales. Our legacy is built on perseverance, community service, and an enduring passion for the sport.

After a 2.5-year hiatus, during which our beloved rink was converted into a Covid-19 vaccination center, we have roared back into action. As we enter our third season back on the ice, our matchday attendance figures have soared, with numbers up over 50% from pre-Covid levels, even surpassing those of the Connah’s Quay Nomads. This overwhelming response from our fans not only signifies their loyalty but also reinforces our bond with the local community.

Our Philosophy
The Deeside Dragons are more than just a team – we are a community-based, not-for-profit organization, run entirely by devoted volunteers. Every puck drop, every cheer, and every moment on the ice is a testament to the tireless efforts of these individuals who work behind the scenes.

Our mission extends beyond the rink – we are committed to supporting our local community, raising awareness, and providing assistance for other good causes within our region. The Dragons serve as a beacon of unity, perseverance, and social responsibility.

The Future
As we gear up for our third season back on the ice, we are more than just a team; we are a symbol of our community’s tenacity and resilience in the face of adversity. Our story is a testament to the power of sport to unite, inspire, and uplift. This season is particularly special as we celebrate 50 years of ice hockey in Deeside, marking a significant milestone in our history.

We are extremely grateful for the unwavering support we have received from our community and look forward to welcoming you back to our games. Join us as we write the next chapter of our story, on and off the ice, carrying forward the legacy of the Deeside Dragons.

Together, we are stronger. Together, we are the Aspray Chester Deeside Dragons.
