The WALDECK Peterborough Phantoms are saddened to announce that #72 Glenn Billing will be leaving the club ahead of the 23/24 season.
Glenn joined the Phantoms organisation in 2017 and has spent 5 great seasons in a Phantoms jersey! Since joining the Phantoms, Glenn has racked up 305 points from 231 games with an impressive 104 goals and 201 assists.
Glenn was part of the team to win the treble in the 2017/18 season and became a National Cup Champion with the Phantoms in the 2022/23 season! Glenn will also leave the club being the 6th highest overall point scorer in Phantoms history, which is an amazing achievement!
Glenn Billing said the following on his departure: “Deciding not to return to Pboro next season was the toughest decision I’ve had to make in my playing career. Unfortunately due to some personal circumstances and work commitments, I can no longer commit to traveling.”
“Playing in Pboro have been the best years of my playing career and I’m so grateful for the opportunity that Slava and all the directors have given me. I have made so many memories and life long friendships that I will forever cherish, and I’m so grateful to all the teammates I’ve had in Pboro over the years for making it fun every time I came to the rink!”
“I’d like to thank Clare and Scott for welcoming me in to their home and their family, without them none of this would of been possible and for that I will be forever grateful.”
“I can’t thank you all enough for the support every weekend over the years and I’m sure we’ll catch up at a rink next season! Thank you, Glenny”
Head Coach, Slava Koulikov commented: “Glenny has been fantastic from day one, true gentlemen off the ice and true professional on the ice.”
“I can’t thank Glenny enough for all the commitment he has given Phantoms over the years, helping our organisation to make history and lifting 4 Trophies. Glenny will be hugely missed by everyone involved with Phantoms but specially in the dressing room, as he always put team & team mates first. On the ice Glenn was phenomenal, best C in the league, who leads by example every shift and makes players around him better.”
“Thank you again Glenny and wish you all the best in personal & hockey live going forward!”
We are sad to see Glenn leave the organisation but we would like to thank him for all of his hard work over the past 5 seasons, and wish him all the best for whatever may come next!
Thank you Glenny #72
