Weldon was awarded a testimonial by the club after 10 years loyal service and current and former Phantoms players all turned out to pay homage to a popular teammate in front a decent crowd at the city rink.

For the record ‘Team Blue’ beat ‘Team White’ 11-9, but the scoreline was incidental to the night itself.

Weldon, a forward, joined Phantoms in 2011 and has stayed with the club since then. He had previously played exclusively for Nottingham from under 16s to Elite League level.
