Newcastle Speedway has revealed their first signing for 2018 and are delighted to announce that the hugely popular Ashley Morris will return to Tyneside for his third term with the Diamonds next season as he becomes the first rider announced for the Diamonds 2018 squad.
Morris, whose popularity on Tyneside can be gauged by the fact that he has been runner up in the supporters'-voted "Diamond of the Year" poll in each of the last two seasons.
Diamonds' Team Manager, George English said: "Ashley has suffered in his career by moving from track to track due to his average being one that makes him vulnerable to team building and he was delighted that last season he was able to settle at a club for a second season, so the fact that he will be with us for a third term is a massive boost to him and one we are very pleased to be able to accommodate.
"He is popular with supporters and colleagues alike and has the capabilities on improving his starting average having revamped his racing set up at the end of the last season.
"We hope to follow this up very shortly with further news as we wish everyone in speedway but particularly Newcastle supporters the compliments of the season and look forward to a happy new year."
