WEYMOUTH co-promoter James Tresadern expressed his relief in having now secured a full quartet of riders for their Southern Development League meeting against Exeter tonight.

Until lunchtime yesterday the Wildcats had just half a team set to take on the Exeter Falcons at Plymouth’s St Boniface Arena (8pm).

Tom Meakins has had bike problems, meaning he misses out of the meeting, George Piper is also unavailable.

Chris Bambury, who was originally listed to ride at number one for the clash, bent his bike after a crash in the Midland Development League earlier this week, meaning he is not set to feature.

Chris Timms was set to be named at three but dropped out on Monday night, in what has been a turbulent week for Tresadern and the Weymouth promotion.

That meant that just two of four riders were confirmed for the Wildcats just a day before the meeting, with Martin French set to captain the side and Mick Sutton at number four.

But luckily for the Wildcats, they have now recruited Weymouth-born teenager Anders Rowe to step in at number one and Saul Bulley to ride at number three.

And Tresadern is delighted to get the guest riders on board.

He said: “I cannot thank them enough for literally jumping in at the last minute.”

He added: “It has been an absolute nightmare week. We have been struggling for riders

“The list of riders I have been trying is absolutely huge.”
