London Raiders have agreed to release netminder Euan King upon the player’s request.

The 28-year-old has had three stints at the club and has said goodbye once again as he iced his final game for the club on Saturday in their 4-2 victory against Streatham IHC.

King re-joined the club mid-way through last season and became a key part of the team for the remainder of the campaign.

The former Chelmsford Chieftains goalie had a mixed start to the season and spent five weeks on the sidelines due to an MCL injury before returning in their surprise 6-3 victory against league leaders and his hometown club Peterborough Phantoms last weekend.

A club statement said: “We would like to thank him for his various spells within the club and extend those good wishes to his family who had been regular visitors to Raiders games.”

King then released his own statement saying: “Thanks to the London Raiders management, coaches, team-mates and fans for the past year, It’s been a blast and I wish the team every success in the future.

“Enjoy the new rink, you guys deserve it for the past five years in Lee Valley and as I say I wish you all nothing but success in the future.”
