The Peterborough DALROD Phantoms are pleased to have sealed the signature of forward, Will Weldon, for his tenth consecutive season with the club.
Weldon joined the Phantoms ahead of the 2011/12 season after spending the entirety of the early days of his career in his hometown of Nottingham. He featured for the Nottingham Cougars, Lynx, Leopards and the Lions, whilst also making a handful of appearances for the Nottingham Panthers in the Elite League.
He quickly became a fan favourite in Peterborough and is a hugely popular character in the locker room. He’s now approaching 500 appearances in Phantoms colours and the 2020/21 season should see him reach that milestone.
Weldon said the following about his return for a tenth year: “I’m really happy to be back for my tenth season if Phantoms colours. I’m looking forward to getting going again and hope to be challenging for silverware once again!”
Slava Koulikov was thrilled to seal the return of a vital part of his team: “What can I say about Welds? He’s Mr Reliable! I like my centremen to be responsible in all areas of the ice, be one step ahead of what’s about to happen next and be smart defensively. Welds’ hockey IQ allows him to do all of the above and that’s why he is my go-to guy in big/important situations. In the last two seasons, Welds has unselfishly sacrificed his personal points to play such an important role on the team that ultimately made our team very competitive and successful. Welds is irreplaceable in our team and I am really happy he’s back with the Phantoms organisation for a tenth season!”
We’re also proud to announce that Weldon will be sponsored by Butchers Blade for the 2020/21 season. We’d like to thank Butchers Blade for their commitment to the club and we look forward to working with them for another season!

Welcome back, #29 Will Weldon!
