MK Phantoms

In its current form MK Phantoms started to play games in 2012 with the Original Blue kit (away kit). MKP had a good season in the GBFUA league Finishing 3rd out of 6 with most players having played floorball for less than a year.
The 2013 season saw MKP move to playing in the UKFF Midlands league 2 Where half way through the season they were sitting in a close 2nd place. The last game day of the season decided the positions of 2nd through to 4th. MKP finished with a win but other results meant MKP finished the season 4th. This year in the 2014-15 season MKP will be playing in the Midlands Division 2
