Our next signing for the 2016-2017 season is fans favourite Corey Watkins who returns for his 5th straight season as a Raider.
The fiery Welsh born forward had a magnificent year last season with 16 goals and 24 assists from his 36 league games – his best return yet on the Island. His hockey career before moving to the Island included spells with his hometown club Cardiff plus two seasons with Invicta Dynamos.
Head coach Jeremy Cornish says Corey’s experience and commitment made him a definite for the new season.
“It was essential when building this years team to have Corey back. He is now one of our longest serving players and a leader on and off the ice. Corey gives everything out on the ice and when given the opportunity can chip in offensively while still playing his physical style. Our team will once again be young this year and it will be good having his leadership back.”
