Nick Morris looking to put spanner in the Witches works

IPSWICH Sackers’ Witches compete in their first Premier League fixture of the season when the Scunthorpe ‘Henderson Insurance’ Scorpions arrive at Foxhall on Thursday and they will be aiming to take all three league points.

IPSWICH Sackers’ Witches compete in their first Premier League fixture of the season when the Scunthorpe ‘Henderson Insurance’ Scorpions arrive at Foxhall on Thursday and they will be aiming to take all three league points.

This will not be straightforward as Scunthorpe are currently lying second in the ‘North’ League Cup table and recently scored an away victory over reigning Premier League champions Glasgow.

Their number one and captain David Howe who has been on fire so far this season will be missing as he badly dislocated his shoulder in a Grasstrack meeting at the weekend. Young Australian Nick Morris, who is riding for the Swindon Robins in the Elite League this year, will take his place. Nick clearly demonstrated his liking for the Foxhall circuit when he finished second in the 16 Lap Classic last October and his inclusion in the Scorpions line-up is sure to trigger some intense rivalry with the Ipswich aussie riders. The other visiting rider who has a point to prove is Jerran Hart, recently signed as a replacement for the injured Tom Armstrong; he was part of the Witches line-up last year but lost his place over the close season.
