LAKESIDE Hammers have confirmed that Stuart Robson will ride next season in the Premier League for Newcastle after the rider agreed terms with the North East club.

‘Robbo’ has been a popular member of the Hammers side over the past two seasons and fans are likely to still see him in club colours if, as expected, he also doubles up with the Essex side in 2011.

Hammers Team Manager Jon Cook commented: “Stuart enjoyed great success at Premier League level in guest appearances last season and was keen to race as often as possible as he was the only member of the Hammers team not to have a foreign contract. This move is good for him and if our plans come to fruition he is likely to share a reserve berth with another rider whom we are very close to bringing to the Club.”

Cook continued: “All our other plans are on hold as we wait for the BSPA meeting next week although our riders know where they stand and we will hope to conclude team plans sometime after that meeting, once we know that the points limits, pay policies etc are set in stone.”
