The Eastbourne Fineprint Eagles have signed Kyle Newman in time for Saturday’s showdown with the Berwick Bandits (subject to BSPA approval).
Kyle will join the team as an injury replacement for Tom Brennan, who suffered a broken leg on Saturday.
A full update on Tom’s condition will follow later in the week.
Naturally, everyone at the club wishes Tom all the very best.
Co-promoter Trevor Geer said: “Make no mistake, losing Tom is a huge blow to the club and rider and the only consolation is that his amazing start to the season allows us to introduce a rider of Kyle’s quality.
“He [Kyle] has proved he knows the fastest way around Arlington and his experience will be crucial as we seek to rebuild our confidence and season.”
Team news for the Championship League match at Somerset tomorrow (Wednesday, May 22) will be issued later today.
The club will need to secure a two-point guest to replace Tom as the new averages come do not come into to force until after this match.
