Team notes: Formed from the defunct Staffordshire Stampeders in January 1986. Competed between 1986 and 1992, making the playoffs in 1988 and 1991. Signed Tom Parkevich in 1990, and he played for two seasons being joined by Troy Marden in 1991. Ex Spartan Cameron Dundas joined the team in 1991, and they were led one of the best British QB's of the period in Gavin Meredith. HC Ferroni quit after 1991, replaced by Johnson and Weaver. Dundas quit after 1991 too due to nagging knee injuries.
