Romford Raiders import Al Visockas (right) is unavailable this weekend


An import short for big weekend

Romford Raiders will go into their biggest games of the season this weekend with only one import.

Lithuanian forward Algimantas Visockas is unavailable, but player-coach Danny Marshall believes his side can get something from their Essex derby in Chelmsford tomorrow and their Rom Valley Way clash with Invicta on Sunday.

He said: “We’ve got a hard weekend coming up and it’s a shame we’ll only have one import. Al has landed himself a new job and has work commitments now, but he will still be around to help at other times.

“We’ve not been able to get another import in yet, but I definitely think we’re capable of taking points from both games.”

Chelmsford include former Raiders Euan King, Matt Turner and Danny Cox in their line-up and Marshall is looking forward to two tough challenges.

“It’s a derby weekend and I say bring it on. We’ve got a good team and the boys are up for it,” he said.

“I don’t think the import issue is a big thing. We’re taking it one game at a time and we’re looking forward to the weekend.”
