COVENTRY and Rye House have agreed a transfer deal which will see Jason Garrity and Edward Kennett switch clubs.Both riders were already declared in their new parent clubs’ respective line-ups for 2015 but Garrity now becomes a Coventry asset after a successful first season at reserve for the Bees last year, whilst Kennett is now owned by the Rockets as he goes into his second season back at Hoddesdon.Coventry promoter Mick Horton said: “Both clubs realised this was a sensible piece of business, and I would like to thank Len Silver for the professional manner in which this deal was concluded."Silver added: “Clearly the two riders concerned are now part of clubs in which they feel contented and for my part, although I would have liked to have been involved in the advancement of Jason, I am over the moon that Edward is now a fully-fledged Rocket, ready to lead the team for the foreseeable future. My sincere thanks to Mick for the ease with which the business was concluded.”

PETERBOROUGH star Adam Roynon believes his club will be in the fight for Premier League honours this season.Roynon, who joined the Panthers midway through the 2014 campaign, expects a close battle with several teams involved in the race for silverware.He said: “It looks like there are a lot of strong sides in the Premier League this year, but we are equally as strong as any of them. Glasgow look like they have put a good team together and Edinburgh will be tough again after doing the treble last season. But hopefully those two Scottish teams can beat each other up and we can sneak up on them!“It is just a case of getting ourselves dialled into the Showground as soon as we can and also looking to pick up a few points on the road.”
