Defenceman exits for ice-time

Another departure for the Division one side with 19-year-old defenceman Lewis Jones leaving the ranks to seek more ice-time with Division two team Haringey Racers.

The Racers announced earlier today that the young stay at home defenceman has left the Raiders to join the team.

Jones was brought to the club earlier in the season from Division two side Chelmsford Warriors by former player-coach Danny Marshall, to help the team through a difficult spell of losses.

Since his move to the club many additions have been added and the former Romford junior has found himself with limited opportunities in the last few weeks.

The former South East Conference player made 21 appearances for the Lee-Valley based club picking up a goal and four assists in his spell with the side.

Jones wanted to extend his thanks to Raiders by saying: “Thanks to everyone involved for the opportunity and thanks to the fans for the great support along the way.”

Raiders are set for a double header with Streatham this weekend, having drawn with Bracknell and lost to Oxford last weekend.
