The DALROD sponsored Peterborough Phantoms are pleased to announce the annual pre-season Ashes games versus Milton Keynes Lightning. This years games will be held on Saturday 5th September Away at Planet Ice Milton Keynes, with the return leg the following day at Planet Ice Peterborough on Sunday 6th September.

Phantoms are the current title holders of the Ashes. The competition has been going many years and has formed a derby tradition. With a great start and finish to the Phantoms season last year, we are keen to start this campaign the same way and fight to keep all our silverware.

Last year we saw the unique scenario of Phantoms lending MK our home barn for the an evening to host as their home game, but with the new refurbished ice arena now open in MK we will be returning back to its originally format of Away and Home legs.

Head Coach Slava Koulikov commented on the Ashes fixture “MK has been transformed under Peter Russell. They will be fast skating, hard working skillful team with a good mix of young talent and experienced players”.

Slava Contiunes “This is a good test for both sides, just before the season starts and always makes for an exciting game for the fans to watch! Everyone is very happy to be playing the Ashes again”

Face off Times and ticket information will follow shortly.

Announcements can be found on, the official Peterborough Phantoms Facebook page, on Twitter – @GoPhantoms or our dedicated YouTube channel OfficialPhanTV.
