April 1st announcement from Manchester Phoenix Ice Hockey Club

Monday, 1st April 2013

Thanks to all who took the announcement in the spirit it was meant. Manchester Phoenix has a long tradition of putting out April Fool’s day releases and this one is the latest.

Many thanks to the club officials that played along with this and especially to Nial and Georgina Crebbin, our EIHA representatives and keepers of everything official to do with the club. Everyone knows that these two ALWAYS dot the I’s and cross the T’s on all official paperwork and would never have allowed a situation like this to actually happen.

The club will not be revealing who actually concocted this year’s efforts as they believe that several contracts are out on his life and he is currently out walking and will not be aware of the furore.
