History

Aberdeen Oilers were officially founded in January 2007 and became the most northern placed floorball club in Great Britain. Two brothers and former Dundee floorball players (Neil and Michael Shaw) and two students from Switzerland (Sascha Fässler and Lorna Teal) started off with organizing training sessions in Aberdeen, the first of which was held on December 9, 2006 at Torry Sports Centre. Soon the group of players prospered as members were attracted from all walks of life including students from the local education institutions and people living and working in the Aberdeen area. Quite a number of individuals of the initial group were employed in companies of the local oil industry – a fact which largely influenced the choice of the later adopted team name. On 3 March 2007 the first ever match was played in Torry Sports Centre against Balwearie Floorball Club from Fife, which ended in a narrow 2-3 defeat for the Oilers. After further friendly matches played in Glenrothes and a friendly tournament in Dundee the Oilers were soon ready to play their first competitive matches.
