LEAGUE-topping Renault Solihull Barons ice-hockey team were presented with their trophy last weekend during the final game of the 2010/2011 season.

The Barons, who have been sponsored by Renault Solihull since 2008, have now gained promotion for next season meaning they’ll play against the likes of Coventry, Telford, Nottingham and Sheffield – many of which are local derbies.

Sunday night saw the Barons presented with their trophy by Solihull MP Lorely Burt during the match against Kingston Jets which they won 7-3. Earlier this season it was the Kingston Jets who the Renault Solihull Barons beat 14-4 to secure the title with six games still left to play.

John Butler, club chairman, said: “This weekend was a great moment for the Renault Solihull Barons and everyone in the club.

“Everyone has worked so hard and it has really paid off.”
