Tuesday, 5th June 2007

The Phoenix are pleased to announce that Andy Costigan has now joined the club in a full-time capacity as General Manager and that Richard Allan and Mike Landers will both be returning next season in their respective roles as Match Night Entertainment Director and Match Night Announcer.

Phoenix MD Neil Morris remarked, "Andy has been with the organisation since the very beginning handling media relations and certain aspects around team building, and last season he assumed further responsibilities in a managerial capacity, acting as GM for the club. I'm delighted to confirm that Andy has now joined us, after a long and succesful career in the motor trade, on a full-time basis to help take the club forward."

Speaking to the club website Mr Morris added, "integral to our home game nights is our entertainment presentation and last season saw Richard and Mike take on these key roles in keeping the audience involved in the experience of watching Phoenix hockey. These two guys put in a tremendous amount of effort to bring a complete evenings show to the fan base and with new ideas and innovations in the pipeline, our aim is to improve further the match night at the Ice Dome."
