London Raiders have announced the signing of Scottish goalie David Jackson for the new National League season.
Jackson made a combined total of 27 appearances for the Invicta Dynamos and Mustangs during the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons, recording decent statistics between the pipes.
Before that he played in the Northern League for Dundee Stars and the Scottish National League for Edinburgh and Kirkaldy.
A club statment said: “The Raiders management are delighted to be able to confirm another very capable signing.
