Pistol Peters shoots down the Lions

By Danny Caro, week beginning 1 January 1970

Manager name: Rob Richman
Team: North London Raiders A

They had the photoshoot, he had the players, but several questions remained unanswered ahead of Raiders' potentially tricky MGBSFL opener against a star-studded Lions team. But cometh the hour, cometh the man. Step up Phil Peters. He got his tactics spot on as L'Orange looked the business in front of their own fans. But Peters is wise enough to know that Rome wasn't built in a day and it will be a case of getting the same 110 per cent effort levels from his men week in, week out to get that silverware that chairman Jonathan Adelman craves for.
