The criteria of selecting players who will play either in the main team or in the proposed 'B' team is yet to be identified but as it stands right now, the main team is likely to accommodate veterans as the young talent head to the proposed second team.

After every year or season, it is healthy to make adjustments or call them resolutions if you prefer it that way.

National Hockey League winners (men); Weatherhead Hockey Club are no exception for they have already laid down their 2018 resolutions.

Make no mistake, big on the resolutions is that, the club is set to form another men's team (sister team) dubbed 'Weatherhead B.'

Vincent Arnold Kasasa who is the team coach and also doubles as a player revealed this new development with a positive node.

''We have gunned so many new players that we can no longer accommodate them in one team. We also want to broaden our competition in the league,'' said Kasasa.

The criteria of selecting players who will play either in the main team or in the proposed 'B' team is yet to be identified but as it stands right now, the main team is likely to accommodate veterans as the young talent head to the proposed second team.

Kasasa also noted that another huge goal for his side this coming season is to defend the title.

''Last season's triumph was a hard-fought one albeit us being destined to be champions, so, we have to play it all out this approaching season in order for us to retain our title,'' Kasasa said.

Weatherhead completed the 2017 campaign with 39 points to the pain of arch-rivals; Wanachi who were forced to settle as runners up after bagging 35 points.

Also, Kasasa emerged top scorer with 28 goals and has vowed to continue from where he stopped once the 2018 season rolls on.

Albeit developments of the formation of a second team, our sources also understands that Weatherhead are reportedly in their drawing boards in order to establish a state of art facility of their own.
