"The Peterborough Phantoms are delighted to announce the signature of Dwayne Newman as Player Coach for the coming season, Dwayne will take on the Head Coaches role and his experience and obvious qualities were apparent from the outset of negotiations. His desire to be successful and steer our clubs attack for silverware is a challenge he is relishing.
Peterborough Phantoms are also delighted to announce the return of Taras Foremsky, Brent Gough, James Hutchinson and James Archer for the 2007-2008 campaign.
These are quality players that the club is proud to have secured. Taras, Brent, and Hutch all agreed deals immediately after the EPL Play-Off Finals at Coventry, prior to returning home and their loyalty, commitment and affiliation with our club is refreshing. Many clubs were attracted to these players and their only conversation regarding the coming season was with ourselves, such was their desire to return and continue the relationship with our club and its supporters.
As leading scorer last season Taras returns with a desire to not only defend that achievement but help drive our team towards a challenge for honours. Brent Gough formed an outstanding partnership with Foremsky and we are excited that we can see that build further next season. James Hutchinson's contribution when he joined the team was massive and we are delighted he will once again influence from our blue line.
James Archer is one of the best prospect players in the UK. He returns to the team amid interest from several clubs and once again his loyalty and commitment to this club is strong and his skills and scoring presence will
again be on show.
These signings are added to that of Lewis Buckman and Craig Peacock.
We hope all these signings indicate our desire to move our club forward on the foundations of the 2006-2007 season. The club is also hopeful further exciting additions to our 07-08 players and staff will follow over the next few days and weeks.
Jon Kynaston/Phil Wing/Rob Housden"
