New coach not ex­pect­ing ma­jor changes

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

PHAN­TOMS new head coach Jon Ky­nas­ton is con­fi­dent the club does not re­quire ma­jor re-build­ing to be suc­cess­ful next sea­son.

Ky­nas­ton (pic­tured right) has taken over the reins af­ter the club en­dured a dif­fi­cult cam­paign in the English Premier League un­der his pre­de­ces­sor Chris Allen.

Phan­toms scram­bled into eighth place with Allen as player-coach be­fore go­ing out of the EPL Play­offs in the quar­ter-fi­nals against Guild­ford Flames.

But Ky­nas­ton doesn’t feel big changes need to be made this sum­mer.

“I am de­lighted to have signed the five play­ers we have an­nounced over the past few days,” he said. “They are all top as­sets and we have moved quickly to sign them up as they will not have been short of of­fers.

“We hope to be able to an­nounce some more sign­ings over the next few weeks but I am not look­ing to make huge changes to last sea­son’s ros­ter. We are look­ing at one or two ar­eas where we think the team could im­prove and we will try to make that hap­pen.

“There might be a few new faces on the team next sea­son but I don’t see a need to over­haul the team too dras­ti­cally.”
