The double winning DALROD Peterborough Islanders, will be straight into Play Off action this weekend off the back of their Cup win.

Islanders will be travelling to Oxford to take on the Bristol Pitbulls in the Semi Finals of the NIHL S2 Play Offs. Bristol are the only side that Islanders have not had 100% record against when they lost in a Cup fixture earlier on in the season. Islanders will not want to let that freak mistake happen again, as well as the making sure they gain the place in the final the weekend (Weekend of 22nd/23rd April).

Islanders are looking to the Treble now after winning the League and Cup, but with the hat trick in sight, its down to business after a week of celebrations.

Sunday will see Islanders host the second leg against the Pitbulls, 6.30pm Face off at Planet Ice Peterborough. The Islanders really do need your support, in making the atmosphere an electric semi final.

Our special guest at the game will be Jess Boyden, who is a Players sister and avid fan of the sport.

In May 2016 Jess was involved in a serious motorbike accident. Jess managed to break C1 and C2 of her neck, fractured T5, shatter her left wrist, pelvis and both femurs which had an open wound on her right side, this has lead to muscle loss. If that was not enough Jess also suffered a bleed on her brain and blood clots in her lungs.

Its been a long road to recovery, but being nearly 10 months on she would like to get fundraising and start to say thank you to the people that saved her life and whom get none to little funding from the government.

Jess will be fundraising for an excellent cause, the Air Ambulance and the ICU at Addenbrookes Hospital.

So this Sunday, please come and support and donate. Jess will be running the following fundraising games

  • Chuck a duck 50p a duck
  • Shirt off your back £1 (Shirt will be given after the player has finished the season)
  • Win a stick with £1 on, cost is £2, £1 will be donated to the fundraising and £1 taped onto the stick.

Not only do the Islanders need your support so does Jess, so put down your Easter chocolate this Sunday and come and see an excellent game of hockey and donate to a great cause.

Please don’t forget Phantoms Season Ticket holders will gain entry for £3 instead of the adult gate price of £5.
