The Invicta Dynamos will begin their 2015/16 campaign on home ice against the Bracknell Hornets as the Berkshire outfit travel to Kent for the NIHL South Division 1 curtain raiser on Sunday 20th September.
So far the Mos will compete on two fronts during the regular season as they look to mount a title challenge in the NIHL South Division 1 whilst defending their NIHL Southern Cup crown. The campaign, which currently features 40 fixtures, will run from September until the close of March with the playoffs then set to follow swiftly in April.
