Stein Larger Trophy
A well supported end of the season multi-team competition held annually at Blackpool Ice Drome during the 1970s. Teams picked 10 players of which seven could dress for any one game. There were up to 20 teams playing in groups in a round robin format, with 30 minute games and the group leaders going forward to knock out semi-finals and a one-off final. The tournament ran for about 12 hours so there was plenty of time for players and supporters to sample the delights of Blackpool Pleasure Beach and its rides.
