Forward agrees to join Lee Valley ranks
London Raiders have revealed the signing of young forward Mason Webster.
The 21-year-old from Maldon had talks with the club last season and is described as “a welcome addition to the team for 2015-2016”.
Webster came up through the junior ranks at Chelmsford and started the last two seasons at National League Division Two side Haringey, before landing a move to English Premier League outfit Peterborough Phantoms.
A Raiders club statement said: “That paid off as he is now the proud owner of a play-off winner’s medal from the Coventry finals weekend, together with good experience of the pace of play in the EPL.
“He rejoins Alan Lack, with whom he played at Peterborough until Alan travelled south to join the Raiders last December.
“Mason is a player with a physical reputation and there is no doubthe lived up to that last season.
“Raiders will be looking for more than that however as we are sure he has plenty of other tools to chip away at the opposition.
“His work-rate and determination are sure to make him a fans’ favourite in much the same way as Alan Lack was immediately accepted last year.”
The signing of Webster, who is recovering from surgery on a broken elbow, sees him join captain Tom Davis, defenceman David Oliver, import forward forward Michal Oravec, Lack and youngsters Seb Downing and Bailey Chittock on coach Alan Blyth’s roster.
