RIDER NEWS: Parfitt named Welsh Junior captain

Carl Parfitt of Wednesfield Cycle Speedway has been announced as captain for the Welsh junior squad ahead of the Home International, which takes place at Hull in a few weeks.

Carl said: “To represent my country is a absolute honour and one I’m so proud of. But to be named the captain for Wales Junior in Cycle Speedway is incredible.

“I would like to thank Wednesfield for all they have done for me and all the coaching, encouragement and experience they have given to me.

“I will represent my country as a leader and will be proud to do this. To say I’m excited is a under statement.

“Thank you to the Welsh management team and coaches who have given me this opportunity, I will not let you down. Welsh and proud!”

Full team news from the Welsh squad for the junior, open and senior Home Internationals will be announced shortly, as team managers Mark Carmichael and Jack Harrold also set their sights on the European Team Championships.
