League top man about to issue statement on National Cup fiasco

The NIHL South league manager Richard Carpenter has announced that a brief statement will be made shortly on Phantoms appeal over their National Cup exit.

After causing some surprise earlier today by declaring that Phantoms allegation that they had not responded to Phantoms appeal was “simply not true”, Richard followed up this evening by stating, “whenever either party gets the legal side involved, it grinds the process to a snail’s pace and we are very much restricted when it comes to statements but, following conversations held today, we are now in a position to increase our openness on this matter and you can look forward to a (short) statement to be issued shortly”.

The question now is …….. can we really “look forward” to it ?
