om Davis is a former Chelmsford junior who has had spells with the Chieftains, Peterborough Islanders, Romford / London Raiders, Milton Keynes Thunder and Oxford City Stars. The forward has predominantly iced in the NIHL South Division 1 but also made appearances in the EPL and NHL’s second tier. It was with the Raiders where he made his biggest mark – playing 362 times, scoring 88 goals and claiming 156 assists for 244 points whilst also donning the ‘C’ of captain for four years.
Last season was Davis’ first with the Invicta Dynamos and he quickly established himself as a favourite of the fans playing on the team’s first line. The forward iced in all but one of the club’s 42 games, he scored 18 goals and chipped in with 28 assists for a total of 46 points. In addition to proving influential up front he also stepped back to provide cover on the blue line when the side’s rear guard was depleted. Now, after a successful first term in Gillingham, Davis is back for a second looking to build on the solid platform that was 2019/20.
“Tom had a very good first season with the Dynamos and there wasn’t a doubt in my mind that I wanted him back. He’s a fantastic competitor with great experience. He did a great job for us as a first line forward but then was equally important when filling in on the blue line. He’s strong, handles the puck well and brings a lot to the team both on and off the ice. I’m very happy he’s back and I’ve no doubt the supporters are too.”
