McDonald’s Nottingham Hoods will again be fielding two teams, the 1st team will play in Division 2, with the 2nd team playing in the renamed Division 4.
The Hoods will be looking to build on their most successful season ever last year where they finished 4th in the league and reached the play-off semi-finals, but will have another almighty task ahead of them as Division 2 continues to be the most competitive of all the leagues.
