Another new signing has been confirmed for the Eastbourne Eagles.
Bury St Edmunds speedway star, Connor Coles will be joining Arlington Stadium for the 2017 season.
Commenting on the signing, Club Director, Connor Dugard said, “Colesy is a great guy on and off the track. He guested for us in 2015 and also in the KO Cup final this year. He's on a bargain average in my opinion. He could easily put a point and a half on that I reckon.”
Coles has signed for Newcastle in the Championship as well and he believes the doubling up move will be "brilliant" for his progress. He said, “I'm really happy to be joining a great club like Eastbourne, winning 4 trophies out of a possible 5 in the last two years pretty much shows hey mean business, I've been living with the Dugard's for the past few weeks, and speedway is everything to them the atmosphere is great I can't wait to get going!
“I'd like to thank Mildenhall for the opportunities they had given me over the past 3 years from the management to the fans they're all great people and hopefully I'll see you around in 2017!”
The announcement was made on Twitter this morning (29 November).
