Phantoms captain announces retirement

User Rating:  / 0

In a move that comes as a shock to many, Peterborough Phantoms captain Lewis Buckman has announced that he's decided to retire from playing hockey.

Making the announcement through the Peterborough Phantoms website less than 24 hours after leading his team to victory in the Ashes challenge against Milton Keynes Lightning, Buckman said that part of the reason for his decision was that he wanted to be able to spend more time with his 15 month old daughter and to be able to concentrate more on his job away from hockey.

In his 10 seasons at the Phantoms Lewis has become the most sucessful captain in the club's history having lifted 6 trophies in the last 18 months as well as being the clubs' leader in games played, goals and highest assisting Brit. A product of the Peterborough junior development system, he's also represented GB level and has guested for a number of teams in the country's top league.

Lewis will play for the Phantoms for 2 more weeks, giving the club time to re-organise and pick a new captain.
