The Raiders are saddened to announce that the return of popular forward Lukas Sladkovsky has to be delayed till the start of the 2021-2022 season.
“The logistics of Lukas’ return was just too much in the end, and considering this is potentially just a 6 week Spring Cup we are preparing for it was felt that time, and resources needed to be placed elsewhere.
“As a team we have all manner of issues to contend with such as work permits, International Transfer Cards, accommodation and more and for what could be a relatively short return to action Lukas understood that a full return to action, hopefully in September, would be the more productive option. And of course with closed doors and limited income the financial shackles are a fair bit tighter than usual.
“We are all however looking forward to seeing him back at the Sapphire come the start of the new season and re-uniting with fellow delayed returnee Blaho Novak”
