Tait re-signs for the Phan­toms

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Classifieds -

ICE HOCKEY: hopes of suc­cess next sea­son re­ceived a big boost this week when it was re­vealed that War­ren Tait had agreed to re­turn to the club.

Tait (29) joined Phan­toms a few months into last sea­son and im­me­di­ately won over the Bret­ton faith­ful for his ver­sa­til­ity and all-ac­tion style.

And hav­ing played for many sea­sons in the Elite League, Tait, the younger brother of GB star Ashley, was clearly a big pri­or­ity for new coach Cur­tis Cruick­shank.

“No dis­re­spect in­tended to any of the other play­ers but when I took over here War­ren Tait was my num­ber one tar­get to re-sign,” said Cruick­shank.

“He is a vet­eran leader who has ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence at Elite level and his knowl­edge of the game will be of huge ben­e­fit to us.

“He is an ex­tremely ver­sa­tile player as well as be­ing prob­a­bly the best penalty killer in the league and hav­ing such a player on the team al­lows me in­fi­nite op­tions in our style of play which can be hugely im­por­tant with the chang­ing de­mands of a game.

“He is a fan­tas­tic per­son and I look for­ward to work­ing with him.”
