James Wright completes Somerset Rebels line-up for 2012


Somerset Rebels have completed their line-up for the 2012 campaign by signing James Wright.

The 25-year-old ended last season with the Premier League side following his release from Workington Comets.

"I had a word with the management and said I'd love to come back," Wright told BBC Somerset.

"I'm so excited to be back. I'm now looking forward to March as they've put together an excellent team for 2012 - I can't believe how good it looks."

Wright spent three years with the Comets, where he was named Premier League riders' champion in 2007, before spells with Swindon and Belle Vue Aces.

He then returned to Workington but was released in August after a re-shuffle of their squad.

With the Rebels, he will ride alongside Jason Doyle, Alex Davies, Sam Masters, Claus Vissing, Kyle Newman and Tom Perry next season.
