The Peterborough DALROD Phantoms, sponsored by Evolve Technologies are delighted to be putting the spotlight on another veteran to our game, Rob Walker.
Rob attended his first game on the 26th June 1982, when Pirates faced Nottingham Trojans in their first game of three-periods of hockey at The East of England Ice Rink.

Out of a crowd of 200, it is thought Rob is the only fan still attending games regularly to this day. Over the years he has seen many players, imports and owners come and go. Let alone the game change dramatically from the 80’s, but there is one thing we know still remains and that’s our superfan, Rob. Thank you for the many years of supporting the Pirates and Phantoms and we look forward to the many years ahead.

At tonight’s game against Swindon Wildcats, face off 5.30PM, we will be applauding and honouring Rob for his commitment to the club. We hope you all join us in showing our gratitude to our long servant fans.
