The Peterborough DALROD Phantoms are very happy to announce, that Defenceman Tom Norton is back in Phantoms colours.

Tom, the 28-year-old from Nottingham, is returning back to the Phantoms blueline for his sixth season as a Phantoms. Last year Tom, increased his duties in taking a role within the coaching staff. His extensive knowledge as a reliable and skilful D’man has only but been a positive for the Phantoms defensive strategy.

As an ex-Elite player, Tom is used to the big high pressured games, giving stability and calmness to the team. Last season the offensive D’man scored 8 goals and assisted with 17.

Head Coach  Slava Koulikov commented on his trusted defenceman’s return, saying  “Norts is one of the best, if not the best Defenceman in our League, he is complete D man package. His game is good in all three zones of the ice, with or without the puck.

Norts also understands modern hockey and the transition the game has taken. He has an ability to pick up the puck in his own end and go coast to coast with ease, but his speed allows him to get back into position on defence. His skating and offensive skills make him dangerous every time he is on the ice and he gives us an added offensive element that can catch a lot of teams out.

Norts has done a really good job with our D core as an assistant coach and I will be counting on him to continue in the same manner. He takes immense pride in his job as a player and as a coach and I am looking forward to working with him again this season!”

Returning D’man and defensive coach Tom Norton also said “I am really excited to be back in Phantoms colours for my 6th season and of course I am looking forward to continuing to develop myself as a player and as a coach. There has been a lot of changes this off season, we still have the backbone of a really strong team and I’m excited to see what the new players will bring to the table!

We want to bring as much silverware this season to Peterborough as possible, and the disappointment of missing out on the league title by goal difference should give us an extra fire in our belly’s to make sure we are on the right side of the title race this season. I hope everyone is enjoying the summer look forward to seeing everyone come September.

The Own & Loan is now available for Tom’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
