WORKINGTON have completed their line-up for the new season with the signing of 2009 title winner Chris Schramm.

Schramm was part of last year's victorious King's Lynn team but could not be fitted into the Stars' side for their Premier League defence.

He joins the Comets on a 7.34 average after the club's efforts to sign a nine-point man proved to be in vain.

Owner Keith Denham said: "The Comets fans would have been expecting a rider with a higher average to complete our team but I'm afraid there just isn't anyone of that quality available.

"At the end of the day we decided to go for the best of what was left and Chris fits the bill."

Manager Ian Thomas added: "Chris had three very good meetings for King's Lynn at Workington last season in the League, Cup and Premier League Fours. He's a racer who we feel sure will fit in well at Derwent Park.
