The 'Cases' Somerset Rebels have announced the names of the 6 of riders that will represent the club for the 2013 speedway season, it seeing 3 changes from that which ended the 2012 season in October.

Returning are 2 riders who had their 2012 seasons curtailed through injury in the final month of the campaign, namely the Rebels number 1 and skipper Jason Doyle and reserve Tom Perry, who was the runner-up in both the British Under-21 and 19 Championships.

2013 will also see club asset Alex Davies returning to the Oaktree Arena together with European Under-21 Finalist, Kyle Newman, the Dorchester-based rider returning for a second successive season in Rebel colours.

The 2 of the 3 new riders comprise Nick Morris, who was a member of the Swindon and Scunthorpe teams that respectively won the Elite and Premier League Championships in 2012 together with Josh Grajczonek, who joins Somerset on loan from parent club Glasgow, the 22 year-old having won his home Queensland State Championship for a 4th time this last weekend, whilst it is hoped that the club will be in a position to announce the 7th and final rider of their 2013 team in the next few days once the necessary paperwork has been completed.

"In recent years Somerset have had the reputation of putting a team together that was not only capable of challenging for honours but one that would also be entertaining to watch, and I believe that this team certainly ticks all the boxes as far as that is concerned," said promoter Debbie Hancock.

"It is always sad to see riders leave from one season to the next, but as I said the other week, the points limit meant that changes to the 2012 team were inevitable, such is the nature of the sport, but I am sure that our fans will quickly warm to our new riders once they have donned the Rebel colours when the 2013 season gets underway next March."
