King’s Lynn speedway boss Alex Brady says he is ‘over the moon’ with his winter signings.
Brady has brought in Josh Pickering from Sheffield and youngster Jack Thomas, with Richie Worrall and Niels-Kristian Iversen starting a second spell with the club.
Brady admits he had some worrying moments team building, freely admitting last week he missed out on Jason Doyle who chose Ipswich, Lynn’s great rivals.
But the different pieces in the jigsaw fell into place and Brady is pleased with the balance of his side.
He said: “I’m over the moon to welcome Josh Pickering, Jack Thomas and Richie Worrall to the club for 2022.
“None of these three will need any introduction but Josh was the one person I was desperate to sign over the winter and headed every list of team permutations for us, and I’m delighted that he’s also agreed to be our captain for 2022.
“Jack is obviously very local to us, and is desperate to be successful for King’s Lynn. Richie has been with us previously and had a great year, and returns as an even better rider, and my belief is that he is the best reserve in this league by some distance.”
King’s Lynn face a busy spell to complete their four League Cup fixtures.
They head to Peterborough on Bank Holiday Monday, April 18, with a 5pm start time and a big crowd expected.
Panthers then visit the Adrian Flux Arena on Thursday April 21 before the rearranged home clash with the Witches on April 25 with a trip to Ipswich now arranged for April 28.
If the Minors & Brady Stars can win the group they will face the winners of the northern group in the final – and, with Sheffield having bagged two away wins, they are favourites to go through.
