Ipswich Witches 2017 will have a look of experience and freshness about them.
Chris Louis’ side was named on Monday night and while the expected return of British Champion Danny King and the exciting Nico Covatti were almost a given, there are surprises in the team.
None-more so than Australian Rory Schlein who won the Elite League Riders’ Championship in 2011 and 2013.
Kyle Newman – who has so impressed with his Elite League outings with Poole last season – is another new face, while there is a return to Foxhall for Cameron Heeps, after his one-year away at Rye House last season.
And then there are the two young guns – Danyon Hume and Connor Mountain, two youngsters at the start of their careers who will give their all for the Witches in 2017.

Well, time will tell, but there is no doubt the Witches have flattered to deceive in the second tier of British Speedway since they dropped out of the Elite League in 2011.
This side looks very decent – now it’s over to the riders.
