That first meeting was hled at the Boston Sports Stadium on 16th August of that year and they enjoyed a success against the Peterborough Panthers by 49-29. Throughout that year and the next 4 the team were members of the second tier of the British League. They then spent almost 12 years in the National League before holding their final meet on 1st August 1987.|
