The Peterborough Phantoms are delighted to announce the signing of defenceman, Tom Barry, from the Sheffield Steeldogs!

The 24 year old defenceman is a product of the Sheffield junior system and has played the majority of his career to date, in Sheffield. He’s represented the Greyhounds, Rapiers, Steelhawks, Spartants, Scimitars and the Sheffield Steeldogs, whilst his brief spells away took him to Widnes, Sutton and Edinburgh for one appearance in the Elite League.

In Sheffield, he won the 2017/18 NIHL 1 North and in recent week, tasted success with the Widnes Wild in their series of games in the absence of a 2020/21 season.

He’s now ready for a new challenge and is delighted to be coming to Peterborough for his next step: “I can’t wait to get started. It’s been a long wait, but I’m thankful to have the opportunity to come to Peterborough and be a part of such a strong team and challenge for silverware. I know a few of the guys already and I’ve heard that it’s a great team to be apart of. The fans in Peterborough are some of the best in the league and I can’t wait to show what I can do. See you in September!”

And Slava was pleased to see Barry arrive in Peterborough: “Tom is a reliable, stay at home defenceman and he’ll bring balance to our offensive minded D core. He’s a real team guy and I’m sure the fans are going to like him! I’m very happy to have him joining our group and I can’t wait to start working with him!”
