The Peterborough DALROD Phantoms are delighted to announce the majority of the 2018/19 Treble Winning team will be returning for the 2019/20 season.
The Phantoms last season, had a phenomenal campaign winning three pieces of silverware, came second in the League and made it to the Finals in the Coventry Play-Off Final Four. The team as a whole have gelled immensely over the past season, this will only but improve on the successes of the previous season within the newly formed National League.
With a combined 562 points between them all, each and every one of them from the 4th line developing youngsters, imports, top Brits, our blue line defensive wall and excellent goaltenders have all contributed massively to the success of this City side. Every player plays their role within the team and as always the team ethos continues to remain the same in being a team. The ethos and talent our team creates play a huge part in the success of the Phantoms.
So without delay, the Phantoms are delighted to welcome back

In addition to the returning team, we would also like to welcome local Peterborough forward, Conor Pollard back to the Phantoms 1 team. Conor did make an appearance two season ago whilst guesting for the Phantoms 1 from the development team the Phantoms NIHL 2. Conor twin brother of the Peterborough Phantoms 2019 Most Improved and PhanForce Player of the Year Nathan Pollard, has always played a pivotal part in the Phantoms 2 team, showing talent each and every week. Conor now feels its the right time to commit to the Phantoms senior side. The Phantoms also look forward to seeing him develop like his brother throughout this season.
Head Coach Slava Koulikov commented “I am really pleased to secure some of the best offensive and defensive lines as well best goaltending duo in the league. All of them had excellent campaigns and helped us achieve the three trophies, finish second in the League and advance to the Final in Coventry.”
Slava continues “We are excited to have them all with us again, as we try to get ourselves set up for another good run next season, it’s a great starting point to have already signed players of this calibre.”
Own and loans will be released at a later date, so please make sure you stay tuned to social media and our website for further communications throughout the off-season.
