Four More Return

The Dalrod Peterborough Islanders are delighted to announce 4 returning players for the 16/17 season.

Sam Barlow, Joseph Wilson, Jack Sansby and Callum Medcalf have all agreed to return to the islanders for the forthcoming season.

Barlow played in his 100th game for the Islanders last season and still at the young age of 21 he is one of the Islanders longest serving players. Standing at 6ft 5 he made his Islanders debut on the blue line at the age of 16 and has been a main figure on the Islanders team, he is always willing to put his team mates first and will do anything to help the team. Sam is delighted to continue his journey with the Islanders ‘I'm very excited to sign again for the Peterborough islanders. This is going to be my sixth season with them. Last year was a very good season for us all and hopefully we do better this year.’ Stevie is looking forward to seeing Barlow build on his previous seasons ‘Big in size and is a nightmare for opposition forwards when he uses it to his advantage. This will be his 3rd year with me and I’m hoping to see Barlow step up and be a role player for us this season.’

He went on to play 26 games for the Phantoms that season. After posting an impressive 32 goals and 28 assists in his last junior season Stokes attracted the attention of the Chelmsford Chieftains and joined for the 2011-2012 season, however he re-joined the Islanders part way through the season and played 14 games posting 7 goals and 8 assists. The following season was a great one from Stokes, with 15 goals and 9 assists, ‘Stokesy’ was rewarded with an assistant captains role the following season and scored 10 points in 15 games. The past two seasons Connor has been on a two way contract splitting his time between the Phantoms and Islanders, appearing in 50 games for the Phantoms gaining 2 assists. In his 40 games for the Islanders he has posted an impressive return of 38 goals and 35 assists. Known for his speed and with over 100 appearances for the Islanders, Stevie is delighted to have Connor back this season “Big year for Stokesy this year as he will again be playing Phantoms when he can. One of the fastest players in the league and can score goals. He scored some big goals for us last year and the Islanders will be looking for him to be a main player again this season." Stokes also commented on his return, “I had a lot of fun playing hockey last season, so when we lost in the finals of the cup and playoffs it didn't sit to well with me considering the season we had was one of the best in previous years. I'm looking forward to what this season has to offer, with the main bulk of the guys coming back I would like to see ourselves in the running for some silverware again.“
