Club confirm forward's return for 2015/16
London Raiders have confirmed that Alan Lack will be returning to Lee Valley for the 2015/16 National League season.
Lack joined the club midway through the previous campaign, from English Premier League outfit Peterborough, and made an instant impact with his all-action style.
As well as chipping in with his share of goals and assists, the 22-year-old was not afraid to drop the gloves and traded blows with Isle of Wight player-coach Jeremy Cornish during one meeting at the Ryde Ice Arena.
Lack’s return follows hot on the heels of news that Slovakian import forward Michal Oravec has also signed and a club statement said: “We worked long and hard to persuade him to bolster our line-up at the end of last year. When he did the impact was immediate and our own version of Rambo is delighted to be a Raider once again!
“We take pleasure in announcing that Alan Lack will be flying around the ice with the Raiders jersey clinging to him to try and keep up.
“It’s a good fit for both parties as now a local resident Alan moulded into the Raiders roster like a latex glove on a bunch of bananas.
“His no-nonsense style, constant energy and physical presence and willingness to protect his team-mates were an instant hit with the fans.
“He came with a reputation but regular goalscoring and assists proved immediately that he was so much more.”
Lack joins captain Tom Davis, defenceman David Oliver and Oravec on the Raiders roster, with more signing news expected next week.
