The Peterborough Phantoms would like to make the following statement after an incident at the end of the second period in last night’s game against the Leeds Chiefs. 

Ice hockey is a family sport and the club will always take steps to ensure it stays that way. The Phantoms do not accept any form of aggressive behaviour from fans. This includes, but is not limited to, abusive language and personal insults, threatening behaviour and swearing. 

The Phantoms do not and will not condone that kind of behaviour, and anyone seen or heard acting in such a manner will be dealt with accordingly.

We’d like to place on record our apologies to James Archer, his family and the Leeds Chiefs organisation for the events of last night. 

The person involved in the incident last night was spoken to and dealt with, and we are working closely with our stewards and security team to ensure this does not happen again.

The club will not be making any further comment.
