The 27-year-old will leave the club after playing for the gold and blue outfit for the last eight seasons in a row.

Davis has been ever present for the club since the part season he served in 2009-2010.

A captain for some of that time with 362 appearances, 88 goals and 156 assists forming the 244 points scored for the club.

A club statement said: “No one would doubt the enormous amount of time and effort Tom has expended as part of the Raiders in that time.

“The Raiders are becoming a complete hockey club since their home ice in Romford has become available.

“It was hoped that Tom would bring his experience into the Raiders planned division two team and help bring through some of the new talent that will be emerging.

“There will of course be a need for several senior players to mentor the developing junior members of the team.

“Tom will sadly be leaving the Raiders organisation, which we fully understand and appreciate and we wish him all the very best success in whatever he chooses to do.

“We would like to thank him again for all he has given to the Raiders over the past eight seasons.”
