Fred Taylor today informed David Day he is standing down to ensure the last JJ rider on the TL gets 6 rides and a true average for the last 6 meetings of this season.
Taylor explained Day has worked hard and I am sure through the experiences he will come good in the seasons to come.
Replacing him is young Scot and Workington asset Rory Maxted who is being brought in to give him some track experience, already spending time at the Flight Path with our coaching staff in readiness for his week 16 debut.
Maxted is excited by the unexpected chance and states "I thank the club for the size of the SO fee which will fund a few things needed to make me competitive and I hope I can reward the Whales management with some good scores, but ultimately set myself on a path to a senior speedway career".
However like buses you get one and another comes in soon after.
After a long discussion our skipper on track and coach Carl Hooper is feeling fatigued after his efforts in the World O/35's and has asked to be rested for the rest of the season, what a timely thing to do as that door closed on us Fred would never stand in a riders way, another door has opened, Michael Plant the Kings Lynn starlet has had a torrid time of late so us giving him 6 meetings to get himself back into shape could be a godsend for the rider and his club, so we welcome on board boh Rory and Michael, early impressions are good as both have a liking for the Megano.
