Lanham, the British Under-21 champion in 1997, spent much of his career in the Elite League before joining Premier League Newport last season.

Boss Chris Morton said: “We are delighted to have signed a rider of Leigh's experience because he will know all the Elite League tracks intimately. Also, he is thrilled to be joining us.”
