Schramm keen on a Witches return

CHRIS Schramm has confirmed that he would accept a call to ride for Ipswich Witches again in 2011.

The 26-year-old was a worthy member of the Witches side in 2008 when he took the bull by the horns and rode full time in the Elite League.

It was the numbers game more than anything else that led to the Essex-based rider being left out of the side last year when Schramm dropped down to the Premier League with King’s Lynn.

This season he is with Workington and has also been associated with top flight club Eastbourne.

Schramm was in determined mood when asked by Belle Vue to guest against Ipswich at Foxhall last Thursday.

He was paid for 11 points from six rides and if Ipswich needed any nudging about the ability and desire of one the rare young British riders prepared to make the financial gamble and jump up from the Premier League, Schramm gave it to them in bundles,.

And he said: “It would be nice to be riding back at Ipswich. If I was asked I would take the opportunity with both hands.”
