Local youngster signs on!
Redcar have captured the signature of local youngster, Alex Goldsbrough, as he turns 16 years old today.
Bears Promoter Jamie Swales offered the contract which sees Alex sign up as a full Redcar asset and a prospect for the future.
Alex is due to ride for the Cubs as they compete in the Northern Junior League, and is hoping to catch the eyes of a National League side with some solid performances.
Swales is excited to have a local lad on the books. He states “I’m made up that Alex has chosen to join us at Redcar. I know it means a lot for him to not only sign for his local club, but to land the contract on his 16th birthday.”
“Alex has been part of the setup at Redcar since the age of 9, moving his way from the smaller 125cc engines and progressing to the 500s. We’ve been pleased to see his development over the years of riding for the Cubs” continues Swales.
“This one’s for the future. We see alot of potential in Alex and didn’t want to see him being signed up elsewhere which is why we moved quickly.”
Since joining the Redcar promotion Swales has taken on the running of the amateur meetings and practice days. He has a passion to bring on the youth. “It’s moments like this that make it worth while. Seeing a rider come on board after nurturing his talent from the beginning. I’m hoping this is just the beginning for Redcar and our youth programme.”
Redcar will start their 2021 programme with a “behind closed doors” practice session on Saturday 3rd April, followed by the first in this season’s amateur series later in the month.
