Forward back for 2015/16 campaign

London Raiders have confirmed that forward Frankie Harvey will be back in their line-up for the 2015/16 National Legaue season.

Harvey came up through the junior ranks at Romford, before making his Raiders debut in the English Premier League in 2009/10.

The then 17-year-old scored 32 points in 39 games as the team finished bottom of the table and was a key figure in the side as they regrouped in the lower tier, helping Raiders to a league and cup double in 2012.

Harvey scored the Raiders very last goal in the old Rom Valley Way rink, in a play-off match against the Isle of Wight in April 2013, before his side lost a penalty shoot-out.

And he then helped the side settle into new surroundings at Lee Valley, before moving to rivals Invicta in the early part of last season.

His return to a gold and blue jersey sees former GB junior international Harvey linking up once again with former Raiders team-mates such as Tom Davis, David Oliver, Liam Chong and Michael Gray.

And the addition of Harvey takes the Raiders roster to 13 players, with Jack Cooper, Stevie Dunnage, Seb Downing, Bailey Chittock, Mason Webster, Michal Oravec, Alan Lack and TJ Fillery.

A club statement said: “For the first season as a London Raider he can boast 56 points in 30 games and we are confident of getting even more from his as the teams up with familiar faces on his return. Welcome back Frankie!”
