The Peterborough DALROD Phantoms are pleased to announce, talented local forward James White will be joining the Phantoms for the 2018/19 season.

James will be entering his 4th season with the senior Phantoms. The 21-year-old, Peterborough born forward spent his youth within the Phantoms Academy system, as well as spending time with the Phantoms 2 team, gaining imperative experience and confidence within senior hockey. Over the past three seasons with the Phantoms, James really has shown that the system, the Phantoms owners and management has put into place over the years, is really working, as James has improved on his game with maturity, earning him his a full time place within the team.

James commented on his return to the Phantoms “I am so pleased to be returning to my home City team. Like every player, I want to progress personally and as a team, building on what we had last year. The entire team will be pushing and competing hard to have a successful year.

The team looks exciting, we have already started pre-season training, making sure our fitness is up to the level needed. We have another great group of guys, some old some new, and I am really looking forward to the beginning of the season.

Head Coach Slava Koulikov also commented “James earned his role as a top 9 forward last year, over all I was really pleased with his development. He started the season on fire but an injury so early on was a set-back to his progression.

The recovery did take more time than expected and for James to regain his form, but by the end of the season he was outstanding in playoffs and finals!

James has good speed and good at reading the game with and without the puck.

He is one of those guys that gives 110% every day no matter what he is doing and always brings that effort onto the ice in games and in training”.

Slava continues “I am hoping it will be consistent and full season for James and looking forward to work with him again and pushing him to take his game to next level!”

The Own & Loan is now available for James White’s home and away jersey at £125 each.

This year we are also offering a corporate player sponsorship for businesses which will offer announcements and a social media package for as little as £500. For more information on corporate sponsorship or own & loans please contact info@GoPhantoms.co.uk
