CLUB NEWS: Wright move for Dan

Newport Cycle Speedway Club welcomes Dan Wright, who comes on loan from neighbours East Newport. The loan move, which has been agreed by all SSW region clubs and is subject to British Cycling approval, will allow Dan to gain some first-team league experience with the Newport side while still being able to represent East Newport in other competitions.

Club Coach Dale Clark said: “Dan will, without doubt, be a great addition to the team, he certainly impressed a few months ago when he lifted the Under 16’s and open titles at the Welsh Riders Championships. We would like to thank all the clubs in the region for agreeing to this loan, especially East Newport, and we hope this will help both clubs and rider with some valuable track time for Dan as he prepares for Australia later in the year.”
