Lady Phantoms Erikson makes W-League Team of the Week
Hampstead, NH, 09/06/05 – The Lady Phantoms’ striker Meotis Erikson has been included in the Team of the Week selection in the USL-W league. Erikson pulled a fine performance in the 5:0 win against the South Jersey Banshees last Saturday. The Lady Phantoms powerhouse scored a hat-trick and assisted for the other two goals, netted by Amanda Wiggins. The win was first for the Lady Phantoms in the season. The team however has played the least number of games in the Northeast Division and if they can manage to win maximum points of these matches can go as high as second place.

The Lady Phantoms are on the road this weekend. On Saturday they travel to Boston to play the Boston Renegades. The game kicks off at 7:30pm at the Bowditch Stadium in Framingham, Ma. The Renegades are two places above the Lady Phantoms in the table with a lead of three points, but they have played a game more.

First win for Lady Phantoms
Hampstead, NH, 06/06/05 – The NH Lady Phantoms picked their first win of the season after 5:0 victory over South Jersey Banshees in the USL-W league. Meotis Erikson scored a hat-trick for the winners, Amanda Wiggins added another two goals for the final score.

The home side decided the game for six minutes midway the first half. Erikson scored two goals in the 24th and the 28th minutes, coming from assists from Elizabeth Allen and Lindsay Parks. Then Erikson set up Amanda Wiggins for 3:0 in the 30th minute. The Phantoms kept possession of the ball in the second half and achieved two more goals – Erikson made it 4:0 in the first minute of the second half (assist from Amber Radzevich) and made another assist for Wiggins to make it 5:0 in the 70th minute.

The Lady Phantoms powerhouse Meotis Erikson, who scored a hat-trick and made two assists, had an excellent game and was unstoppable for the Banshees’ defenders. Amanda Wiggins managed not only to find the net twice, but had a very positive influence in the middle of the field and run back to help even our defense.

The Lady Phantoms come back to action on Tuesday June 21st when they entertain the Boston Renegades at Dr George J. Larkin Field on the Campus of SNHU, kick-off is at 5 pm. The local team is a place from the bottom in the table but has games in hand compared to the teams above.

For the 2009 season, the NH Phantoms are offering a new program that seeks to bring the New Hampshire Soccer community together in a more festive and cooperative approach including all youth soccer clubs in the area.  The NH Phantoms thank clubs in advance for taking the time to review this new program.


What are the NH Phantoms Super Y youth teams?

§         In 2009, the NH Phantoms will field youth teams for boys U13, 14, 15, 16, 17, and U20 as well as girls U13, U15 and U17.

§         In the past, in an effort to provide players with the greatest opportunity to play, the NH Phantoms participated in both USYSA league play and events, e.g. GSYSL, Region 1, state cup, etc., as well as the USL Super Y league  www.superyleague.com  In retrospect, this reduced attendance to NH Phantoms PDL games as some animosity was created among area clubs who perceived that the NH Phantoms to be recruiting players away from area clubs.

§         In 2009 and going forward, the NH Phantoms will focus on playing in only the USL league and will not compete head to head with area clubs in USYSA league play and events.  This creates a much more favorable and cooperative environment for all clubs and players involved.  Players will be able to play with their USYSA club which has league play primarily in the fall and spring (U14 and younger) and just in the spring for the U15 and older players.  The NH Phantoms league play is primarily in the summer which minimizes conflicts with USYSA spring league play and events.  Because the NH Phantoms will play solely in USL, there should be no conflicts of club loyalty, recruiting, etc.  Instead, the NH Phantoms program will exist cooperatively with USYSA clubs to compliment each other and provide a seamless process for players seeking more training and games.


What does the NH Phantoms Super Y youth team program include?

§          All gear, uniform kits, outerwear, etc.

§          Players may also be selected as reserves which include training gear, training, and limited game play – $500 or if from an affiliated club $300  balance,if selected to roster.

§          Selected players from “affiliated” USYSA clubs will pay only $700 for the full season and $300 as a reserve.  For more information on becoming an “affiliated” club working cooperatively with the NH Phantoms,  contact Donna Dupuis at 603-329-9626 or  phantomsnh11@aol.com

§          Through Super Y league play, players are also eligible to be selected to attend the national Super Y ODP camp.


What is the NH Phantoms PDL team?

§         The NH Phantoms (Premier Development League) PDL team is a U23 team including the top college players in the region playing in the very competitive and national USL Premier Development League  www.uslsoccer.com  Many current professional players got their start on PDL teams.  Standard ticket pricing at the gate is $8 adult and $5 youth, so entry for a typical family would be $26 with the value of a family season pass at $208.

What is the cost to become a NH Phantoms affiliated club?

The cost to affiliate will be based on the number of participating players in your club.

  • 0 to 300 players at $10 per player, $1,000 minimum.
  • 300 or more players or more at $7 per player.

How can your club afford this?

The per player cost for a typical travel team player in area clubs can run from $300-$400 per year up to $1,200-$1,500 per year depending upon the number of activities, tournaments, winter training, gear, coaching, etc.  $10 per player as a percentage would range only from 0.5% to 3% of total player fees.  On the aggregate level, it may appear expensive, but for most, if not all clubs, it may possible to absorb this $10 per player expense without raising player fees. While offering each of their players a free family season pass ($208 value) to the Phantoms PDL games as well as all of the other potential benefits listed above.


The overarching benefit?

The Greater Manchester area includes the Fisher Cats (baseball), the Wolves (football), the Monarchs (hockey), the Millrats (basketball) and the Phantoms (soccer).  Of these organizations, the Phantoms starting in 1996 are the longest running organization.  Having a top level soccer team in New Hampshire to watch and to aspire to play for is an important piece of the NH soccer community.  For the young soccer players and coaches, it is important to watch high level games as part of the development process.  These games are being played by the NH Phantoms right in the backyard of the NH soccer community.  For 2009, the NH Phantoms are looking for the PDL games to be more festive and highly attended.


The NH Phantoms will be looking to add pre-game and halftime skills contests, e.g. juggling, shooting accuracy, shooting power, dribbling, etc., with winning players receiving Phantoms gear, autographed balls, or tickets to Revolution games and recognized for their skill level on the Phantoms web site.


How can you learn more?

The NH Phantoms intend on directly contacting area clubs to become part of this program.  For more information or for a meeting and discussion with your club board of directors, contact Donna Dupuis at 603-329-9626 or phantomsnh11@aol.com
