The Peterborough DALROD Phantoms announce the return of forward, Will Weldon for his 8th consecutive season.

Will has spent most of his senior career in a Phantoms jersey, and to say this will be his 8th consecutive season with the City side, with him only being the young age of 25 years is incredible. This is even more special, as he is a player who was born, raised and still remains and works in Nottingham.

Will has always been a known player to get under the skin of the opposition and not allowing anyone to get the better of him, giving him that fiery edge we all love. Last season, the reliable centreman created 15 goals and an amazing 30 assists giving him an admirable 45 point season.

Slava Koulikov commented on Will’s return “I’m very happy to have Welds back, he is a very popular figure in our team, a fan’s favourite and proven to be a great leader.

Welds is very coachable and does all of the little things right, he’s one of the best two-way hockey players I know and one of the team’s best penalty killers.  The team will be counting on him to do the same again this season.

Welds always has been, and always will be, another player with a huge character. He can score and make plays but he also brings the grit factor to his game. He is direct, isn’t afraid to go into the dirty areas and knows where the net is.

Welds has a big role to play this season, on and off the ice and I’m looking forward to Mr Welds leading our team once more this season!”

Will also commented saying “I’m really happy to be back for another year in paradise. On reflection, we had a good season last year, but ultimately we fell short at the business end of the year.  So this season I am even more hungry to get started.

The team looks good, the off-ice work has already started, making sure we start the way we mean to go on.

I hope everybody is having a great summer and I’ll look forward to seeing you all in September”

The Own & Loan and stall sponsorship is now available for Will Weldon’s home and away jersey at £125 each, Stall £35.

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
