BUXTON have continued a policy of promoting from within by handing a team place to Cameron Hoskins for the 2015 National League season.Hoskins appeared regularly in the club’s Midland Development League team last year, and he will join Paul Bowen at reserve for the Hitmen.Hoskins said: “I am really happy that I am riding for Buxton next season and I am very keen to get started. I’ve been riding speedway for nine years but have had a few setbacks and last year I had bit of a mixed season. After my debut for Scunthorpe I rode at both Devon and Buxton and I’m looking forward to a settled team place – it didn’t take me long to say yes to the Hitmen!“I’m sure I will progress throughout the year and I would like to thank Jayne and Richard (Moss) for the opportunity.”
