Tom said the following on his return: ‘After the season we’ve just had, it was a no brainer to sign back! As I always say, I wouldn’t want to play anywhere else and I am excited to push for more silverware next season with the team Slava is assembling.’
Slava Koulikov, Head Coach commented: ‘This will be the 10th season I have worked with Nortz and he has been consistently one of the best D in the league since joining the team. Nortz is an amazing person, and a great team player so I am happy to have signed him back for another season.’
The Peterborough Phantoms have awarded Tom with his testimonial as an appreciation of his service and loyalty to the club. A testimonial is awarded by the club to a player that has played 10 consecutive seasons for that club.
Tom commented: ‘ I am excited and honoured to be awarded a testimonial from the club, and would like to thank all of the owners for giving me the opportunity to have one. I look forward to the season ahead and getting everyone involved in my testimonial season, so keep an eye out for updates and the opportunities that will be coming.’
We can’t wait to see Tom back in a Phantoms jersey for the 2023/24 season, and we look forward to brining you more news on his testimonial!
