Will Weldon Testimonial, in association with Front Foot Creative Ltd, the Butchers Blade and Glo Golf are pleased to be able to release details of the captains for the game to be played at Planet Ice Arena, Peterborough on Saturday 28th May 2022. 

Will is proud to serve as the Phantoms captain for the 2021-22season. Whilst he has been a Phantom he has only had two previous captains. With this in mind it is only fitting that these two players will captain the respective testimonial teams.

The 34 year old James Ferrara needs no introduction to fans. He is the Phantoms leading all time appearance record holder with 674 games as well as being third in the all time goal scorers list with 181 goals. He was Phantoms captain from 2013-2014 to his retirement at the end of 2019-2020. Earlier this season James was honoured to have his shirt number 17 retired by the Phantoms. James will captain Team White.

The Calgary, Canada born, Jeff Glowa (46), first came to the UK in 2004-2005 to play with the Hull Stingrays before joining the Phantoms in 2010-2011. Jeff played as a centre, playing 162 games for the Phantoms, scoring 79 goals. He was captain of the team for Will’s first season 2011-2012 and the following season. He retired from hockey at the end of the 2012-2013 season. Jeff will captain Team Blue.

Will had the following to say about James and Jeff:

“Where to start with these 2 gentlemen… I was so very fortunate to get to play under these guys’ leadership and I hope to have picked up traits from them both to allow me to successfully captain the Phantoms. I am really pleased that both guys are available to play and I can’t wait to see them both lace up the skates on 28th May.”
