The WearWell Bombers were formed in 2016-2017 having previously been known as the Pictou County Crushers (U15 AAA) and the Scotsburn Dairy Bantam AAA.

When Jon (Sim) expressed interest in taking over the Crushers, he was looking for a sponsor to join him. Stirling MacLean (President WearWell Garments) was approached and without hesitation the WearWell Bombers were formed.

The “Bombers” name holds great significance within Pictou County. The New Glasgow “Bombers” of MVJBHL won Provincials, then went on to win the Maritime Junior "B" Championship that same year (1972-73) coached by Fraser MacLean (Stirling’s father). Stories of the 72-73 BOMBERS continue to be told whenever the topic of Pictou County Hockey comes up.
