London Raiders player-coach Danny Marshall has revealed the names of three more players for his 2014/15 squad.

Tom Davis and Dan Peters are set to return to gold and blue, having appeared for the club following their move to Lee Valley last season.

And England junior international Bailey Wootton, 18, has also agreed to join the ranks in a bid to further his own playing career.

Marshall said: “Tom really found his position last season on defence, but he is more than capable of playing forward if I need him to.

“Dan made the step up last year to playing a competitive level and did well, but I do think he can put more points on the board and so does he.

“I’m looking for that from him this season and he will have an opportunity to do that.

“Bailey trained with us a few times last year but I had a full squad at one stage and then the transfer window closed so it was just a case of bad timing for him.

“He’s a forward with potential and I think there could be a little battle for spaces on the top two lines!”

The addition of the latest trio takes the Raiders roster to nine skaters, with more names set to be announced next week.
