On Sunday 4th April we were lucky enough to sponsor the EPL match between the Manchester Phoenix and Peterborough Phantoms.

This was actually the second leg of a 2 game play off which was finely poised 3 v 3 from the evening before and what a leg it was!
We took 30 clients, advisers and friends down to the Kingfisher VIP Suite atAltringham Ice Arena to see possibly the best game of the season. We were treated to 3 periods of sensational drama, with the Phoenix going 2 v 0 up in the first period only to pegged back to 2 v 1 at the end of the second. Phantoms scored again early in the third period to leave it to Joe Graham to nail the win with less than 3 minutes to play. Even my 3 year old daughter was dancing around and banging on the glass shouting “Phoenix!” (although she did mix it in with the odd chant of “Saaale!”).
So not only was it a fantstic game but we had all 30 clients saying what a wonderful experience it was, most of whom had never seen a live Ice Hockey game. Neil and his team looked after us superbly and kept us in drinks and pizza through out the game – can’t recommend them enough. The picture above shows me after the game with Ryan Johnson and Ben Wood.
