Forward speaks out after move to Invicta
Frankie Harvey has thanked the London Raiders fans for their support following his decision to quit the club and join National League rivals Invicta.
Harvey came up through the ranks at Romford, earning Great Britain junior international honours, before making his senior debut during the 2009/10 English Premier League season.
After a fine debut campaign, despite the team’s struggles at the bottom of the table, he went on to enjoy further productive spells in front of net before suffering a knee injury.
Harvey stayed loyal to the club following the closure of the Rom Valley Way ice rink and the team’s subsequent move to Lee Valley, but missed the first four matches of the current campaign season due to a suspension carried over from last season.
He appeared against the Dynamos earlier this month and will now line up for the Kent club, alongside a host of other former Raiders, for the rest of the season.
In a statement on the club’s Facebook page, Harvey said: “I would like to say thank you for all your support over the last five years, you have been brilliant fans.
“I would like to give special thanks to the Roffes and previous sponsors for supporting me over the years, I really do appreciate it.
“I have really enjoyed all my time playing for Romford/London since I was seven (15 years), but I do believe it is now time for me to move on to try a new challenge, not for anyone but myself.
“I have had some amazing memories through the years at Romford and I’m sure in future years to come there will be some more in the gold and blue jersey – but for now I feel it’s time to part ways.
“Thanks again and best of luck to John, Danny, Kev, Alan and the rest of the team.”
