Bears complete side!
Redcar Agilia Bears are delighted to announce the remaining 5 members of our 2020 team, joining Erik Riss and Jordan Stewart who were announced last month.
Charles Wright, Michael Palm Toft and Kasper Andersen all return from last seasons team, with two new reserves joining the team in promising duo Joe Lawlor and Jordan Jenkins.
Charles returns to Redcar after a superb season in 2019. As Bears skipper, he led the side to the playoffs and won the KO Cup with a famous victory against Newcastle. On a personal level, he also won the British title and did himself proud in Cardiff at the British GP scoring 5 points. He finished the season with a 9.59 average, and will be the Bears number 1.
Michael Palm Toft is another to return, after his season was unfortunately ended early due to an injury. He is another who had a good season in 2019, and finished on a 8.18 average which puts him third in the averages behind Charles and Erik.
Kasper Andersen also returns, after becoming a huge fan favourite at the Media Prima Arena last season with his battling performances and great celebrations. After being released by Sheffield, the Dane came in part way through the season to replace the injured Tom Bacon and achieved a 4.86 average.
The first of the new faces in 2020 is promising Brit Joe Lawlor. Joe had a spell at reserve for Leicester last season, helping the Lions to win the Championship Title and the Championship Shield. He also rode for Stoke at National League level, achieving a good 7.91 average. He will join the Bears on a 2.00 average.
He will be joined at reserve by another Brit with huge potential in Jordan Jenkins. 18 year old Jordan has been prolific in the National League over the last few seasons, first with Mildenhall and then last season with Kent. He achieved a 6.55 average for Kent last season. He also had a brief spell at Birmingham in the Championship, and will join the Bears also on a 2 point average.
Stay tuned to our website over the next few days, as we will bring you the thoughts of the 2020 Bears!
