Three big signings for Phantoms

User Rating:  / 0

Peterborough Phantoms have announced the return of two key players from last season's grandslam squad, Lewis Buckman and Joe Miller, along with a new signing of Alex Symonds from Telford Tigers.

Last season's captain Buckman returns for his eleventh consecutive season at Peterborough. He joined the Peterborough Pirates in 1999 and remained throughout the transition to the Phantoms - although he did have a very short stint with bitter rivals Milton Keynes Lightning.  During this period he has also iced at Elite League level with Nottingham Panthers and Basingstoke Bison.

Telford-born Joe Miller will be starting his third season with the Phantoms. Last season Miller came close to being the leagues' top British point scorer, being beaten by team mate Craig Peacock. As a result Miller has had a lot of interest from other clubs but elected to remain in Peterborough for the new season.

Joining the Phantoms from the temporarily moth-balled Telford Tigers is d-man Alex Symonds. Alex has spent most of his career with his home-town team Cardiff Devils, some at Elite League level but in recent years has also iced for Swindon Wildcats and the GB Under 20's. Although Phantoms management thought they would have a battle on their hands to sign him, Alex was only too happy to sign for the club and is hoping to get a chance to help win silverware again this season.

In the wake of these signings, the Phantoms have also announced that James Hutchinson and Euan King will be leaving the club. Hutchinson will be returning to the Elite League after signing with Hull stingrays, King is looking for an opertunity as a starting netminder for another EPL club.
