Fen Tigers co-promoter James Easter was pleased to have secured Woods, he said: “Sam (Woods) is a rider who has been on my mind for some while now, I always felt it was a wise move to hold fire on the final signing and see what happened once Christmas was over and so it has proved with Sam’s sudden availability fitting in perfectly with our plans and club ethos. He is a gritty rider who always gives you his all and is a good team man. He impressed me with his spirit when he rode as a guest for us last season and there is no reason why he cannot kick on this coming season with the support and backing of our team.

Things have fallen nicely into place and we are now ready to go, there will be a couple of events announced shortly (including Meet The Riders) prior to Press and Practise and we are looking forward to meeting up with many of our great supporters again after the winter break ”

The 2017 ‘KJM/Manchetts’ Fen Tigers will line up Jon Armstrong (C), Jordan Jenkins, Danny Halsey, Connor Mountain, Luke Ruddick, Danno Verge and Sam Woods.
