Stoke Potters have signed two new speedway riders for the forthcoming 2015 campaign.
Danny Phillips, 18, and Ryan Terry-Daley, 20, will join together with a number of riders who raced for the club in 2014, including captain Jon Armstrong.
Other possible signings are also being discussed, the Loomer Road-based club has said.
Promoter Dave Tattum said it is great to have “fresh faces” and describes the two newcomers as “two of the most promising riders on the National League scene”.
Phillips, from Teeside, first raced for Scunthorpe in 2012, before taking a year to develop his racing skills until he felt ready to compete permanently once again.
He joined League Champions Cradley Heath in 2014 but they have had to cut back due to new regulations.
Terry-Daley joins after competing for Coventry Storm in the 2014 campaign.
The New Zealand-born racer has been competing in the UK for the last three seasons, averaging a score of 5.00 for the Coventry side.
He feels the facilities at Stoke will help to sharpen him and get him ready for the high standards of the National League.
Team manager Malcolm Vasey said he is “delighted with the acquisitions” and that the 2015 campaign is looking “very exciting” for the Potters.
