After much consideration and endless discussions with my family and my race team, I have decided to find a new challenge for the 2017 speedway season and have handed in my official transfer request to the Coventry Bees promotion which has been accepted and I have made it clear to Mick that I am happy to go on loan or a full transfer.
The final home league meeting against King’s Lynn tonight will therefore mark the final appearance for me in Coventry Bees colours for the time being.
I have thought long and hard about this decision and although i have loved all of my time in coventry colours, after a disappointing season for the bees and myself by my own standards I feel that now is the right time for a change and a new challenge.
I decided to make this announcement today to enable me to say my goodbyes to the Coventry Bees fans, staff, promotion, management and sponsors, but to also put pay to speculation and rumours via social media outlays.
I have had ten plus great years at Brandon and my testimonial and League title successes have been just a few of the highlights of my time at the club. I hope we can go out on a high with a win over King’s Lynn tonight and as always i will give it my all.
Thank you for all of your support during my time as a Coventry Bee and i hope to see you all tonight !
I would certainly not rule out a return to the bees in the future, however, in the meantime i wish them well ...
