Stick to the plan… Manchester Phoenix look for a second Swindon swindling

Manchester Phoenix hope to beat Swindon Wildcats for the second time in a week as they face two away fixtures this weekend.

The Mancunian men travel to third-place Peterborough Phantoms on Sunday a day after they face a Swindon Wildcats side they beat 5-0 at home last week.

The confidence-boosting match saw Phil Hamer make his return to the Phoenix and coach, Tony Hand, was very pleased with his side’s convincing performance against the fifth-place Southern side.

“The boys stuck to the game plan and there’s a huge sense of satisfaction amongst the group. 

“It’s great to get a win against a strong team, and the third line did really well. 

“It’s the first time we’ve been able to ice three full lines in months and that really contributed to the win.”

The victory came as the Phoenix continue their drive to raise funds to keep the club going.

Along with club owner Neil Morris, Hand is very grateful for all the support and was glad to be able to give something back to the fans.

“There’s a lot going on around the club in terms of fundraising, so it’s great to put some smiles on people’s faces.”
