RYE House promoter Len Silver is preparing to take his squad on their now-annual ski holiday which also serves as a team-bonding exercise.
Silver is particularly pleased to have brought fast-rising talent Jason Garrity to Hoddesdon having already seen the teenager win the National League Riders’ and British Under-19 Championships at the venue last season.
Silver said: “Jason demonstrates a winner's attitude, and in one so young that is very refreshing. I believe this boy can go all the way and I expect that we at Rye House will play a big part in his future development.
“It gives my team an exciting duo of teenagers, with Jason joining with Tyson Nelson for 2012, and I am very excited at the prospect.”
RETURNING Newcastle star Christian Henry is confident he can win over the doubters and regain the form he showed in his first spell with the club.
Henry was a high-scorer for the Diamonds in 2005-08 but has suffered with injuries in recent years and rejoins the club on a 5.45 average after an interrupted season with Glasgow.
He said: “On that average I believe I’m a snip and I feel sure I can increase it. My form around Brough Park is good and it’s for sure I’ll be worth a few more points than that at home.
“I know I’m not everyone’s cup of tea, and I probably wasn’t on many people’s wish list, but I’m really looking forward to showing everybody I can still cut it.”
