Raiders add young British Forward The Wightlink Raiders are delighted to confirm the signing of 18-year-old British Forward Joe Denness, who joins the side in time for this Saturdays game with the Streatham Redskins.
The former Basingstoke Junior iced in eight games for the Raiders last season before jetting off to America to play for the Midget AAA team Jacksonville Ice Dogs.
Joe has now returned to the UK to further his education and the Raiders wasted no time is signing up the promising youngster. A spokesperson for the Raiders thinks Joe will be a great addition to the squad…
“Joe is a young player with a lot of promise, in the few games he iced with us last season he proved more than capable of competing at this level”.
“His time in America will have only helped refine his game, and we are looking forward to having Joe in the team and taking his game to the next level”.
The Raiders will be in league action this Saturday as they take on the Streatham Redskins at Ryde Arena, 6pm.
