BRITISH Under-21 champion Lewis Bridger admits he is seeking a move away from Eastbourne for 2010 and is targeting a switch to “Peterborough, Swindon or Poole”.

The Team Great Britain international expressed his desire for a new club last winter, but opted to stay with the Eagles when Edward Kennett left for Coventry.

Bridger is keen to test himself on a bigger circuit in the UK, having raced just four league fixtures in Poland last season.

While he has no regrets about spending 2009 at Arlington, he feels the time has come to move on.

“I don't think I could have done what I have done this season without his help. But I 100 per cent need a change for next season.
