Speedway - Perry is captain
Stoke speedway team manager Adam Isherwood has confirmed that new Potters number one Tom Perry will be captain for the 2019 campaign.
Isherwood said: “Tom Perry is the obvious choice. He’s been working on the team with Dave (Tattum) Caroline (Parsons) and I for the past few months and he’s had a big input into the side. I feel that Tom will relish the challenge; he’s a level-headed lad, knows what speedway is about and is a good and solid team man.
“Despite his experience, he’s still a young man and led Birmingham to back-to-back title victories a few years ago and has been riding bikes from a very young age.
