The Will Weldon Testimonial, in association with Front Foot Creative Ltd, the Butchers Blade and Glo Golf are happy to confirm the final team rosters for the testimonial match to be played at Planet Ice Arena, Peterborough on Saturday 28th May 2022, face off 17:30. 

Unfortunately three of the players originally announced as playing in the testimonial are no longer available.  These are Janis Auzins (broken ankle), Tom Carlon (unavailable) and Gareth O’Flaherty (broken jaw).    

Will has drafted in a replacement net minder for Team Blue.  We are pleased to announce that Phantoms 2 netminder Sebastian Lipiński is taking Janis’ place. 

The Torun, Poland born, 21 year old shot stopper joined the Phantoms 2nd team this season after making his senior debut in his home country in 2018-19.  Sebastian has played 20 league matches for Phantoms 2 with a save % of .928, as well as 3 play off matches with a save % of .908. Sebastian is a Polish junior international having represented Poland in the World Championships at Under 18’s and Under 20’s.  Will had the following to say: “Seb has been a huge part of the Phantoms organisation this year, not only playing and practicing with the second team but training and helping out off the ice with the Phantoms too. I am really pleased that he is able to play in the game”.
