WEYMOUTH Wildcats have made their fifth signing of the close season by securing the services of Connor Fletcher.

The move leaves Weymouth just one rider off their target of six for the 2018 roster.

In a statement, Wildcats’ co-promoter James Tresadern said: “Connor was in the first team when the Wildcats returned to the track in 2016.

“He had a rough season last year, and his attitude to better himself, and push himself is what we like in a rider and we felt that we had to grab him before someone else did.

Fellow co-promoter Martin Peters added: “Connor is 100 per cent keen and eager to improve. We’ll encourage him to ride as much as he can.”
